Microsoft’s open-source strategy: A picture is worth a thousand words

  • ZDNet; By Mary Jo Foley (Posted by tracyanne on Feb 2, 2008 5:30 AM EDT)
Does Microsoft have an open-source strategy — beyond finding new ways to thwart Linux and other non-proprietary wares? Sam Ramji, Microsoft’s Director of Platform Technology Strategy and the company’s Open Source Software Lab, says it does. And it’s a lot less touchy-feely than this definition, which is on the Microsoft Open Source Web site: “The Microsoft open source strategy is focused on helping customers and partners be successful in today’s heterogeneous technology world.”

I'm trying to Find anyone who lives in San Antonio

I have a friend in San Antonio, who needs some help with a computer I gave her son for his 9th birthday. It runs Mandriva Linux 2007.1. As I'm in Australia I can't help all that much.

The study did not take into account silent (undocumented) patches.

Jeff Jones, security strategy director in Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing group, is at it again, comparing three years of vulnerability data for the two main Web browsers — Internet Explorer and Firefox — to reach a conclusion that IE is arguably much safer than the open-source rival.

Comparing Flash and WPF (Silverlight)

There has been a lot of talk lately about WPF/Silverlight. I have also been learning and writing WPF articles, but what I thought might make an interesting article would be to compare and contrast WPF/Flash. I feel I have the right to do this, as I have worked with both technologies, and although I am not selling myself as an expert in either, I feel confident enough to write this article, I thought it would just make some interesting reading for others that just dont know how WPF or Flash work. For example if you're a Flash developer and dont know what WPF is, I am hoping this article will help you, and vise versa.

Help, I have a problem that I can't sort out.

PhotoSynth and SeaDragon

Photosyth takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and then displays the photos in a reconstructed three-dimensional space, showing you how each one relates to the next. Microsoft purchased the technology but it's impressive never the less.

You discover something new everyday

This is one of the joys of using Linux

It's Time We Had A Talk

If you disagree with what we are doing, you don't have to participate in it. You have every right to be vocal about your attitude and opinion on projects such as this. But to come onto my website and "flashporn" it like you did two days ago, that is unexcusable. The idiots that did it made the mistake of congratulating themselves in a forum on myspace and I was able to google it and find out exactly who they are...I mean besides idiots. You have no right to lie, gossip and damage our efforts because of your Abby Hoffman set of political ideals.
