One thing he said really did catch my attention: ???Overseas they don’t really trust proprietary software anymore.??? Yup. I’ve been saying that here on FOSS Force for a while – like from the moment Snowden began giving us the lowdown on the NSA. I got a chance to ask him about that later on. He said that he and some of his open source business cronies were talking about that recently. He said the Snowden revelations are costing the proprietary guys and gals billions. I said that might explain Microsoft’s new Transparency Center in Belgium.
