Despite all the rhetoric from Microsoft’s evangelists, they just can’t get over their hatred and fear of software freedom. And it’s not just about the GPL as some assert – this sweeping rule ensures they probably can’t even have software under some of Microsoft’s own OSI-approved licenses. Looking forward to the spin explaining why this is all OK.

Rings true to me.
