A member of the Interop group that supports Microsoft's position, I wouldn't be surprised to see Xandros there as well.

Not only that, but you can be certain that the IVAP will be dispensing spin right and left, throwing out its nets wide to try catching any straying FOSS companies.

Microsoft already doing the PR-thing more "openly" as of late, what with so-called "revelations" contained in the post-OSCON pieces 'Predator' Microsoft applies to give itself cancer' ( and 'Microsoft launches Open Source site' (

Guess that MS is attempting to veer off for a brief spell from its FUD/"Extinguish" mode through HilfBilly's & Co's "Embrace and Extend" OSCON efforts. But, your guess is as good as anyone's just how brief this may really be..............
