Summary:
Yes, that’s right. Microsoft’s anti-Linux, anti-ODF, pro-software patents and anti-FOSS people are now participating in decisions about “OSS” in Europe. They sure know how to stack panels, as those OOXML corruptions have already demonstrated. "With nearly a thousand European SME members, we have a very real interest in seeing an economic turnaround in Europe in whatever form that might come," Zuck writes. But who is it again that pays his wage? The company that’s suing Linux and open source using software patents? They cast it differently of course, saying that there are "nearly 4000 SMEs [they] represent."
