"Microsoft is fine, actually. They've changed. Big Bad Evil Microsoft is a thing of the past."
If Microsoft is so nice, why don't they just release their Windows 7 source code under a Free Software license?
not to be Devils advocate, but I'd assume part of the reason M$ hasn't opensourced windows is because of licencing
it wouldn't surprise me if windows contained IBM, intel and other such licensed code that'd make it hard to fully opensource
but that being said still doesn't change that contrary to m$ claiming they love opensource they seemingly haven't even tried at all to open up windows (i mean really even apple does a better job at having an opensource os)
Still, Microsoft was created with this philosophy in mind:
@tindall but Microsoft is investing $1B on climate change R&D so they're the good guys. Right? No need to go try to collect the several times that ammount that they owe...
@tindall This article makes me wonder how much tax is avoided by billion-dollar companies in the US, in comparison to the total amount paid by private individuals
