Microsoft to developers: ‘Open source is a choice’

,----[ Quote ]
| At the Cebu open source summit, Microsoft was telling developers it is ready
| to help them go "primetime."
|
| Microsoft's presence in the summit drew quite an impact, if not harmless
| ribbing. In a presentation by noted IT entrepreneur Winston Damarillo,
| mentioning indicators that open source is ready for primetime deployment, one
| answer reads: "The number of times in a month Microsoft says: ‘We support
| open source.’"

That's the same Microsoft that worked hard corrupting whoever necessary to
intercept an open source bill in this country.
