Does Microsoft really want to be open source's friend?

Since then, I've looked more closely at the details of Microsoft's "new" position and it looks even more to me like a new coat of paint on the same old Microsoft "We're so interoperable" BS. In other words, Microsoft is opening up its secrets for you to look at, but, woe to you if you try to use any of them in anything that might actually make money. Microsoft isn't offering open source a new opportunity, it's offering open source a trap. - Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols


ECIS,: European Committee for Interoperable Systems. Excellent initiative! Europe will watch Microsoft like a hawk, and will see to it that the recent 'playing nice' with open source/Linux of Micro$oft will result in something substantial, till this far it does not.
