GNU, GPL, Open Source A week ago the news got out that Microsoft had approached OSDL for a comperative study between Linux and Windows. OSDL confirmed this, however, they did not provide an answer to Microsoft's request. On Friday, Joe Brockmeier had a chance to have a short talk with Cohen [CEO of OSDL], and got a definitive answer. Cohen said that "there is no way we would do a joint research project with Microsoft."

Thanks for trying but FUD has been around since before the term "open source" was coined. From Wikipedia: "FUD was first defined by Gene Amdahl after he left IBM to found his own company, Amdahl Corp.: "FUD is the fear, uncertainty, and doubt that IBM sales people instill in the minds of potential customers who might be considering Amdahl products."". Unless you're trying to say that Gene Amdahl was an open source advocate in 1970.
