Mundie defends his anti-GPL speech

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet has commentary from Microsoft's Craig Mundie about reactions to his anti-Open Source speech May 3. "
In my speech, I did not question the right of the open-source software model to compete in the
marketplace. The issue at hand is choice; companies and individuals should be able to choose
either model, and we support this right. I did call out what I believe is a real problem in the licensing
model that many open-source software products employ: the General Public License."
