GNU, GPL, Open Source It's time for the Windows and Linux communities to drop the religious war and get together in a hurry to put the strengths of each operating system to best use, according to a nationally recognized authority on Windows Server. At the same time, Microsoft has been reaching out to the open-source community to try to find ways to overcome the incompatibilities between software distributed under the GNU General Public License and its own commercial software.

When I see something actually released that would aide open source in interop with MS products then maybe I'll believe them.

Maybe it's Microsoft's outstanding friendship history that makes me skeptical or maybe it's just how they don't play nice sometimes.

I like Windows as much as the next guy but MS has done some shady stuff in the past and I don't think that open source projects should walk right into the lions den unarmed
