MS Attempts to Grok OSS

Monday November 2nd, 1998

This news has trickled down from various readers, who came across it through a link on Slashdot.

In the words of reader Cameron Mulder, "[An] interesting memo from M$ talks about Open Source Software and how it will affect them. Mostly about Linux, but it has some interesting information about how they view Mozilla."

If Microsoft really thinks that 80% of every possible browser idea is done already then it is MSIE that will fail-not Mozilla. Another thing-with the work on NGLayout, implementing it as an ActiveX control and the work on Activedesktop (see <http://hoserhead.ml.org/mozilla/>), Microsoft will have to find a new strategy.
