Microsoft takes on net nasties


MICROSOFT executives love telling stories against each other. Here's one that platforms vice president Jim Allchin told at a recent Windows Vista reviewers conference about chief executive Steve Ballmer.

It seems Steve was at a friend's wedding reception when the bride's father complained that his PC had slowed to a crawl and would Steve mind taking a look.
