Microsoft and open source fooferaw

Microsoft has made announcements about interoperability with open source and their products.  Lots of analysis of this is happening, though I like chromatic’s summary best.

    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.
