Well, if it were to come down to Ballmer vs. RMS, then there's no question who will win. RMS will use psychological weapons to disable Ballmer before the first blow ...

    Well, if it were to come down to Ballmer vs. RMS, then there's no question who will win. RMS will use psychological weapons to disable Ballmer before the first blow is even dealt:

    Now, who would be left standing after that, I ask you?

    (Don't get me wrong, now... I fully agree with the lyrics... but that guy really can't sing)

    I've heard that song before but strangely enough, I've forgotten how bad the song was performed!

    I wounder if those people are applauding him of pure politeness or think that he sang the song good. Can't be the last one

    Jeez Dolda, that singing is awful. Even I can sing better than that! I didn't even manage to get to the end of the clip. Are all hackers tone deaf or just RS?

    Ps. What does 'Dolda' mean. Is it Swedish?

    Someone really should perform it "for real"... It does have anthem-like qualities, if only it was sung by someone who really can sing. I shan't really say anything, though - I'm about as good as he is when it comes to singing or otherwise performing, but at least I can take pride in the fact that I am aware of it and thus don't try to use those abilities. =)

    And, no, `Dolda' doesn't mean anything at all. It's just a stupid nickname that a friend of mine came up with three or so years ago. I kind of liked it, though, and it stuck with me.
