About The Microsoft Memo
A recent story about Microsoft and Open Source, published this week in Wired, has been generating a lot of email. While I’m trying to respond to everybody directly, I want to note here how much I enjoy getting this feedback, especially coming from readers who have obviously followed open source controversies for a long time. Thank you!
I’ve turned comments on Aether off due to a plague of comments spam, but I have been discussing the story with various people and will post a summary.
I discussed early drafts of the piece with Marc Hedlund and Paul Boutin, and though neither of them should be forced to take any responsibility for the ideas in it, they definitely helped keep some wrong ideas out of it.
