"As pointed out two months ago, Microsoft had hooked up with NASA to make some pseudo-open source project that denies access by open source platforms. How ironic is that? Microsoft did something similar with the Library of Congress [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11], denying public access to information owned by this very same public, unless they buy from Microsoft. And guess what? Microsoft paid (as usual) the Library of Congress millions of dollars to achieve this. It is truly appalling, but to expect the same from NASA given its track record (see [1-15] at the bottom) is not easy. NASA continues to shut GNU/Linux users out because of Microsoft. It's not the first such example (World Wind comes to mind)."
