Microsoft "InformationWeek recently interviewed Bill Hilf, Microsoft's leading light on open source issues. Since coming to Microsoft from IBM in 2003, Hilf has been inextricably involved with Microsoft's strategy for dealing with Linux. He's recently been appointed general manager of Windows Server marketing and platform strategy, which means he's taking on an expanded role, but open source is still one of his core issues."

Microsoft should open source code that they no longer use in there software. For ex. Windows 1.x, Windows 2.x, Windows 3.x, Windows NT 3.x, Windows 4.x ( aka Windows 9x, and Windows ME ), Windows NT 4.x, The older Office per 2004 (this could be any expt current version), MS-DOS any version, etc., etc. Wow that be alot of lines of code.
