"I get a lot of junk email at my day job, usually from vendors
that are trying to convince me that they are better than the
competition, or just your typical spam. I usually empty my spam
folder without reading anything but one heading did catch my
attention (the title of this post). If you know anything about
Microsoft's war against Open Source, you can imagine the irony when
I seen the below image in the body of the email.
"The irony is the fact that this email came out around the same
time as Microsoft decided to utilize closed source patents in IE9
instead of public domain codices such as Theora. Apple even
followed suit. To make matters worse, Microsoft is waging a patent
war against Android smartphones, claiming that they infringe on
their patents. So with all of this activity against open source,
how can Microsoft claim that they are committed to it?"
