LXer: Readerís Take on Microsoft Open Source

Published at LXer:

Microsoft never utters the phrase “ Free Software”. Microsoft tries to obliterate the meaning of “ Free Software” as in fighting-for-freedom- and-against-monopolisation- of-knowledge-software (remember the distasteful comments of Bill Hilf, one of Microsoft executives, saying “ Free Software doesn’ t exist in 2007″ , there is no such thing as a free lunch, and etc ad nauseam) and instead substitute it by the much-easier-to-tame “ Open Source” phrase, which they promote for everyone to embrace, without any ethical implication whatsoever which must represent just a way of developing software and monetizing it.
