Summary:
Q: Are you saying then that you'd prefer an open standard to some kind of patent licensing agreement? Whitehurst: A patent licensing agreement is a whole different thing than do Red Hat products interoperate well with Microsoft products. We're happy to work on interoperability. The patent issue we're still not sure what it is, we've yet to see a patent we're supposedly violating. We've asked and asked and asked and Microsoft has yet to tell us. It would be nice if they tell us at least what they are. The beauty of the open source community is that I feel very confident that is Microsoft will tell us what they [patents] are we'll work around them pretty fast.
