Tip Toeing Toward Open Source

Microsoft has yet to make a bold proclamation about open source. Instead, we have hints, various announcements and some bits of Microsoft software that are actually open to all.

One of the latest tidbits (that fail to explain where Microsoft really stands) is Silverlight, a new, lightweight Web development/mash-up tool that has now been adapted (by new partner Novell) to work with open source.

This is an interesting test. How far will Microsoft allow these open source fans to go? We'll keep you posted.
