Smart move

Microsoft To License Windows Server Source Code

Today, Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith announced Microsoft's decision to license all the Windows Server source code for the technologies covered by the European Commission's Decision of March 2004.

The company is making this voluntary move in order to address categorically all of the issues raised by the Commission's December 22, 2005 Statement of Objections. That document asserted that Microsoft's prior technical documentation provided insufficient information to enable licensees to implement successfully certain Windows Server communications protocols.

You can’t win a war with your customers, especially if they have sovereign authority.
