Microsoft welcomes OSI open source to Win8 store

“The invitation does not extend to GPL.

“Microsoft’s agreement continues:

“‘If your app includes FOSS, it must not cause any non-FOSS
Microsoft software to become subject to the terms of any FOSS
license.’ Although Microsoft didn’t name it, it’s talking about
GPL.

“Microsoft has been warming to open-source apps for years now,
as a way to help sell more copies of the underlying Windows client
and server operating system.”
