Blogger Can’t Tempt Microsoft to Drink OSI Kool-Aid

A Microsoft Shared Source license was submitted to the Open Source Initiative for official approval as an open-source license – but it wasn’t Microsoft who submitted it. “Someone submitted the Microsoft Community License, one of our Shared Source licenses, to the OSI without our knowledge or approval, but the OSI contacted us and asked if we wanted them to proceed with that,” said Bill Hilf, Microsoft’s director for platform technology strategy. “We told them that we did not want to be reactive and needed time to think about it.”
