Microsoft tries to woo open source community

Microsoft was out in force at an open source conference in London this week, but many delegates were unwilling to talk about its motives

[From the article: "Fishenden told ZDNet UK that the conference was a good opportunity to address the “misconception”, as he put it, that Microsoft was anti-open source."

Pacheco Committee Report Whacks Mass ITD/ODF

Now, the investigative report of the same committee has been issued.
