Red Hat exec back on stand at Microsoft remedy hearing

From the family of sites: "If Linux is a true threat to Microsoft's desktop Windows monopoly, then Red Hat Inc.'s chief technical officer, Michael Tiemann, is one of the nonsettling states' most important witnesses. Tiemann returned to the witness stand today (Monday) in the Microsoft Corp. antitrust trial's remedy phase. He was there to make the case for porting Microsoft's Office suite to other operating systems such as Linux, explain the need for mandatory distribution of a compliant version of Sun Microsystem Inc.'s Java, and justify the call that Internet Explorer code be made open source."
