Microsoft co-sponsoring open source 'census'

Despite CEO Steve Ballmer's claims last year that Linux vendors are violating some 235 Microsoft patents, the company seems to be trying harder to learn to live with the open source world ââ¬â and vice versa.
Redmond said Monday it will co-sponsor the Open Source Census (OSC), a project aimed at getting a handle on who uses which open source software (OSS). Statements on the group's site, describe the OSC as "a global, collaborative project to collect and share quantitative data on the use of open source software in the enterprise."
