A senior Microsoft executive has written to the Mozilla organisation offering support to get its open source Firefox browser and Thunderbird e-mail client to run on the forthcoming Windows Vista operating system. (...) He offered "spaces set aside" at Microsoft’s Windows Vista Readiness ISV Lab (...) "I'm committed to evolving our thinking beyond commercial companies to include open source projects, so I went to the non-trivial effort of getting slots for non-commercial open source projects."
I would like witnessing MS toying with the Open Source.
Many EU and other Gov use extensively the open src palette.
MS is only trying to jump on the bandwagon; however, I do not see “evil” in that move.
(Unless I do not get your point)
Firefox is getting more and more unstable lately - okok, you should install EVERY extension there is :) - and some "help" from MS helps the browser and lets MS get some good vibriations!
