Microsoft and Open Source: If you can't beat 'em ...
From eWeek.com: "Microsoft won't be waving the white flag when it camps out in Booth 1390 at LinuxWorld Expo next week. But its execs won't be adorned in pith helmets, either ... Microsoft wants to relate, geek-to-geek, to the LinuxWorld conventioneers at the San Francisco Moscone Center. To do so, the Redmond software maker plans to show off four of its technologies that it believes developers will find of interest, according to Microsoft officials. These include its shared-source software-licensing plan; Services for Unix (SFU) Windows utilities; Embedded XP software (for the retail/point-of-sale crowd); and Web Matrix, a new hobbyist programming tool."
