Microsoft Microsoft rolled out its big guns, including CEO Steve Ballmer and Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie, to underscore its commitment to the set of new interoperability principles announced Feb. 21 that are designed to increase the openness of its high-volume products and drive greater interoperability. In fact, Microsoft's long-term success depends on its ability to deliver a software and services platform that is open and flexible and provides customers and developers with choice, Ballmer said during a media teleconference. The EU is skeptical on Microsoft's pledges, according to Ars.

CIFS a standard, haha dream on, there is one old doc about CIFS and the best documentation is still samba source code (and cifs linux module). NTLM is not a standard and they force it on users even with HTTP. The problem is not that they don't endorse/use standards, the problem is that they deviate and make non-compatible extension instead of pushing for a common solution.
