Dear Mr Gates, an open letter


Author: JT Smith

Posted on Advogato is an open letter between a programmer living in the European Union, and Bill Gates. In it, he asks that Bill allow him access to certain documents about closed standards in Windows for the purposes of making things interoperable. And, if Bill refuses, he notes that under European Law, Council Directive 91/250/EEC, he would be able to do much more pervasive interoperablity (to the point of working around MS licensing setups).
