GNU, GPL, Open Source Even though some believe that Microsoft's recent patent lawsuit against TomTom is a prelude to an all-out legal assault on Linux, that doesn't stop Bob Muglia, the company's president of Server and Tools Business, to look into the future and state that Microsoft's products will look more and more to open source software. In fact, he predicts most Microsoft products will have open source in them at some point.

Correction: how open source development works by YOUR definition.


Let's just say that; there is a reason why the GPL is the most common open source license out there. Most of the people actually writing open source code prefer to use the GPL.

It doesn't have to be "religious" at all, just look at Linus etc. It's about common sense; if you appreciate and value the openness, then you will protect it.
