The reader who contributed this item to us correctly noted the
slightly disjointed nature of the writing, but it's got some
insights worth noting all the same:
"...if you're an open source developer, skip the
O'Reilly conference (Mundie is giving a keynote, what a waste of
time!) and instead of posting yet another scathing exposee of the
evil of Microsoft, learn about and point to something cool that a
small commercial developer is doing. You might even get a
consulting gig out of it. How's that for a business model.
It's the Zen-like way to win and at the same time save the soul
of the Internet from being sucked behind the philosophical and
intellectual firewall at Microsoft. No it can't be owned Bill, so
stop trying. (Same message to the open source leaders.)"
