+ - Microsoft claims "we love open source"->

Submitted by jbrodkin
jbrodkin (1054964) writes "Everyone in the Linux world remembers Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's famous comment in 2001 that Linux is a "cancer" that threatened Microsoft's intellectual property.
While Microsoft hasn't formally rescinded its declaration that Linux violates its patents, at least one Microsoft executive admits that the company’s earlier battle stance was a mistake. Microsoft wants the world to understand, whatever its issues with Linux, it no longer has any gripe toward open source."
