Are Microsoft over confident?

Just caught this little peice on tools by Ballmer. It captures Microsoft’s attitude to software; which is very much like Wallmart’s attitude to consumables. Cut out the costs, sell it cheap and use loss-leaders to push out the high end competition.

Problem is that as prices for services approach zero on the Internet, can cheap compete with free (as in beer)?
