Linus Torvalds praise to Microsoft for Open Source

Linus Torvalds, leader of the Linux kernel project that’s among the best-known open-source threats to Windows, has words of praise for Microsoft‘s announcement last week that it would share some previously hard-to-get technology with open-source programmers.

“I may make fun of Microsoft occasionally, and yeah, I think they do stupid things at times, but I think this one was a step in the right direction,” Torvalds said in an e-mail.

“Could it have been even more? Sure. But give them credit for at least seeming to open up a little, even if it probably was at least partially pushed upon them by the EU rulings.”
