Microsoft has made announcements about interoperability with open source and their products.Â Lots of analysis of this is happening, though I like chromatic’s summary best.
Yeah I heard they invented Source Forge… uhhhh errrr, Source Force…… one letter different. enough said for MS intent.
I remember hoping somewhere between 2000-2002 that Microsoft’s strategy would change from predation to interoperability. Now it’s just a day late and a dollar short, assuming it’s even sincere, which I doubt. You can’t prepare to sue someone for patent infringement one month and then denounce the practice the next. Microsoft has made too many enemies, and now it’s paying the price.
