    Also, why did you not just use one of your new OSS licenses instead of this?  That was not really answered in the video AFAICT.  TIA

    This is good, but I am a little confused. Most of the standards listed are web service standards. Why would Microsoft need to promise not to sue someone for using an industry standard?

    And I can-t wait for the Novell/Linux-Deal-video, explaining me, why RedHat-using companies sleep suddenly uncomfortable.

    BTW: guy-s, haven-t seen the video being excited? Classy comments. Wink
