I'm certainly no expert, but this Computerworld headline surprised me:

Here's an excerpt:
Microsoft has embraced the open-source community over the past few years in
a very different way than before, Negroponte said. "And that really helps,
because it's become a little bit less religious than it was a few years ago
and that's really good. In the end, I think, the more people that have
software and hardware out there, the better."

As for me, I must confess I find this news somewhat depressing...
Cheers & enjoy,
