Is Windows moving toward an open source model? Hmmm. Look at this ComputerWeekly article. "Enterprise users will now be able to access Microsoft source code as a result of last week's changes to the Software Assurance subscription licensing programme."
The analysts seem to be coming down against Linux. Here's a report from Giga. And Dan Shafer decries Gartner's decision. Of course, Gartner was telling us two weeks ago to not use Hotmail/Passport. I guess you gotta take your lumps and your sugar with these guys.

David Weller has the best Microsoft weblog disclaimer I've seen so far.
I disappear for one night and people start emailing me "have the execs taken away your right to post?"

Of course, maybe my wife is in cahoots with the execs, you never know.
