Microsoft "Microsoft will make available the preliminary versions of technical documentation for the protocols built into Microsoft Office 2007, SharePoint Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2007. This documentation, which defines how these high-volume Microsoft products communicate with some of its other products, is 14000 pages and is in addition to the 30000 pages posted when the software giant first introduced its new Interoperability Principles last month. They will be made available April 8."

This is probably the main problem with their open specification promise... They will make everything available (sort of) and then say "if anyone implements our protocols outside any pet project, will have to pay us".

This is monopolism, this is bad will from their part...
