When a large business stalls, it falls back onto dirty tricks and ethically questionable but legal moves to generate cash and scare competitiors. Microsoft has been in this state for quite some time. Watch for them to explain how they still love open source but... (looking at you, Gianugo)

Well worth reading to understand Microsoft's world-view. Sadly Smith wasn't asked about the "patent promise" I mention below, but this interview helps us understand why Microsoft believed IE was important (developer APIs) and why they love "interoperability" (because it was the keyword for release from 12 years of investigation).

"MS ... claim that this lawsuit has no relation whatsoever to Linux, and they're only targeting TomTom's specific implementation of Linux. I have actually reviewed the TomTom kernel sources a number of times during the last couple of years as part of gpl-compliance reviews.

I first raised this during "due diligence" - delighted to finally see it happen. The SCA is a "rights share" where the contributor retains all the rights they had in addition to sharing them, and Sun offers a pledge to keep the code open source in return. The old agreement MySQL were using was a copyright transfer to them alone with no sfaeguards and had plenty of people unhappy (including me when we tried to contribute to MySQL in the past!)
