Microsoft moving towards opensource? – Yes

As I first blogged back in August – Microsoft moving towards opensource? Now we know .. and the answer is yes.. at least a bit anyway!

In a press conference this morning, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and chief software architect Ray Ozzie announced a new initiative designed to open up its products and foster better interoperability with competing products and technologies. “These steps are designed to further increase the openness of our products and to drive great interoperability and choice for our partners and our competitors,” Ballmer said during the call.
