Ok after a little thought maybe I am being a little cynical. After all
it was a huge surprise when I saw that Silverlight now works under
FireFox. Granted only on the winblows platform. And one must give
credit where credit is due win7 is a pretty good OS, granted I only say
this after upgrading from Vista. My question though is this, is M$ new
contributions a example of a leopard changing its spots or are we
witnessing M$ adopt/adapt to the superior (IMO) economic model of F/OSS?
Personally I think its adaptation and thats why we see M$ exploring
other revenue streams. Anyone Bing lately?
