Open Source in the Share of Wallet Wars

http://www.riehle.org

On their blogs, Matt Asay and Savio Rodrigues are discussing whether IBM is using open source to diminish competitor margins.

Microsoft Has a Reasonably Discriminatory Plan to Illegalise FOSS

http://boycottnovell.com

A few days ago we wrote about Microsoft’s defense of RAND (and a bit of its latest slime against Groklaw). Do not be mistaken or deliberately misled to the point of believing that this RAND gotcha only applies to OOXML.

This furor has died down to a large extent and apathy has set in. To combat this the FSF brought out their GPLv3 but this seems to be too little too late.
