Good old Microsoft 'suddenly' decides to release roylaty-free APIs and protocols. Is this a change of heart for Microsoft, or a 'decision' based on pressure from the EU? Microsoft says that the move will fend off competition from Linux - which was one of the very reasons the information wasn't released before. Microsoft is cornered and scared, no doubt about it. Either that or it has caught something from SCO."
