Linux is not open source, says Microsoft

Microsoft's Australian MD Steve Vamos has revealed the latest line in its battle against Linux: Linux, it seems, is not open source.

As the concept of open-source takes hold, not only with fanatical individuals but with governments across the world who like the idea of a freely
accessible source code, Microsoft is attempting to drive a wedge between the idea of open source and the reality of Linux.

Stressing that Linux is "not free", Vamos said open source is a development methodology that should not be confused with the commercial nature of
Linux distributions.
