MS Wants To Outlaw Open Source: "Threatens" the "American Way"

[1]EnderWiggnz was one of the people who wrote to us about
some interesting [2]quotes from Jim Allchin, main Windows guy
at Microsoft. Essentially he argues that Open Source
undermines intellectual property (which is true) but that it
also stifles innovation and he "...can't imagine something
that could be worse then this for the software business and
intellectual-property business." My favorite quote:"I'm an
American, I believe in the American Way,'' he said. ''I worry
if the government encourages open source, and I don't think
we've done enough education of policy makers to understand
the threat." Wow. I know - let's blame Canada! That seems a
logical next step!
