Open Source PLUS Open Standards are a “Smart Business Decision” Says E.U.

The New York Times reports today a hard rebuke from European Unionââ¬â¢s competition commissioner, Neelie Kroes, against Microsoftââ¬â¢s tactics in Europe. In her speech she offered up some advice worth heeding; ââ¬ÅI know a smart business decision when I see one ââ¬â choosing open standards is a very smart business decision indeed,ââ¬Â Ms. Kroes told a conference in Brussels. ââ¬ÅNo citizen or company should be forced or encouraged to choose a closed technology over an open one.ââ¬Â
