Why open source scares Microsoft
Author: JT Smith
NewsFactor Network writes "In his most recent comments, Microsoft's Craig Mundie painted a fairly bleak picture of a world in which general public licenses exist. His argument was concise, if drastically flawed. Without commercial software, he said, companies would have to focus on service and support, which would result in lower R&D budgets. That, in turn, would lead to fewer developed projects, less taxes paid, and less money available to run universities and other government services."
