Steve Ballmer recently opined that the more open source commercializes, the less worried he is about it. That’s open source as a competitor to Microsoft, but what is Microsoft doing to embrace open source internally? This session will take a look at how open source is increasingly pervading Microsoft: the Linux lab, the Sourceforge projects, the Shared Source licenses, etc. A birds-eye view into how the industry’s biggest software company is embracing open source.
