Re: Suddenly Microsoft wants Open source - when it suits it
The problem for the "Open source community" is that they are represented by people who care more about purism and never forgetting any slight against them, than they are business users who have pragmatic decisions to make about services. You can't always use one OS, so it's good when there is interop between heterogeneous environments.
The "cancer" comment was about ten years ago, IIRC, you don't see them saying thing like that now. You see them releasing drivers, kernel updates, custom built machines, interoperability tools etc. etc.
