Microsoft Microsoft is slashing the number of licenses it will use for its Shared Source Initiative from now on, while at the same time radically shortening and simplifying the text of those licenses. The move, which will be announced on Wednesday morning at Oscon, the O'Reilly European Open Source Convention in Amsterdam, will see Microsoft cutting back the more than 10 Shared Source licenses that currently exist to only three template, or core, licenses.

Oh I see. Thanks for clearing it up a little ;)

I never payed much attention to the Open Source thing that Micosoft set up. So is it easier to wite Open Source for Mic? I'm guessing that it isn't and as someone pointed out there are some "small print" type clauses in these licenses. Whatever lol
