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."

once, N5 ships and lets people make their own interface for Communicator it will get more people excited, and second the browser is an important peace of software for linux.

I see more linux programmer helping with Communicator, because they want a better browser to go with their favorite OS (linux)

I see IE slipping behind, because now M$ is focusing on killing Linux, while Netscape is working on a better layout engine and other cool features, like chrome, ect..

that's my 2 cents...
