The two of you are certainly both reasonable people and it is often hard to
disagree with you on the merits.

And yet, Microsoft just seems to me to be a very dangerous institution which
is highly motivated to disrupt the FOSS community.  Am I more or less right

So while I agree that "us versus them" can lead to pitched symbolic strife
that is mostly sound and fury signifying little, at the same time, it seems
to me as if Microsoft doesn't tolerate dissent or alternatives.  And so it
makes me a bit uncomfortable to see Microsoft people at FOSS events.  It
makes me wonder what Microsoft is up to.  i personally believe that Winfred
had probably cleared his ability to come to CABAL with his Microsoft
supervisors.  And I wonder why they gave approval.  What is their goal?
