Friend in Seattle caught this one:<p>Seattle Times -- Business & Technology.<p>To a certain degree, the settlement also may help untarnish Microsoft's reputation as a bully. If Ballmer and McNealy can smoke the peace pipe, it may send a message that Microsoft is open to all comers.<p>I can hear Ballmer saying, "Our reputation as a bully must not go untarnished."
