Martin Vermeer comments on Microsoft's ongoing attack of the GPL license. What, exactly, is Big Redmond so afraid of? Vermeer says the GPL is "a threat to their air supply on their home turf -- the only market they believed to be securely in control of after killing
off or marginalizing all of their commercial competitors, the home base financing all their other power grabs -- is something they themselves are intimately familiar with
in the role of perpetrators. Now they are getting a cookie of their own dough."
