“Patent-protected and open source” MSspeak

What a bunch of croc! This story is amazing. I appreciate that this is a story being spun out of some press release. But even then.

“We are very pleased with the initial response in the Chinese market to our joint offerings for IP peace of mind and technology interoperability in such areas as virtualization and high-performance computing.”

For a nation that did not care for US copyrights and patents, they are now suddenly concerned about it? I reckon all of this is really a April 1st story that got delayed.

Oh, and another thing: I am aware that there are some people at MS Singapore upset with me in being critical of their business and their lack of any ethics. I heard it in the voice of someone whom I thought would have been above all of this. I will call it as I see it. Tough.
