MSFT @ JavaOne 2005

“I, Microsoft, take you, Sun, to be my partner,
loving what I know of you, and trusting what I do not yet know.
I eagerly anticipate the chance to be as admired as you were,
getting to know the force you had become,
and falling in love a little more every day.
I promise to interop, interop and interop with you
through whatever life may bring us.”
