It's the usual ivory tower folks not owning up for their mistakes. MS didn't take anything. These guys were so full of themselves that they didn't think what they had put out was any good. Just because it's Free and Open does not mean it is the best by default.

But whatever. What really bugs me is that this whole thing was not about helping kids but getting more people to use Free Software.

And this could have worked! Right idea, wrong people.
