Lindows on Windows
June 14, 2007
Microsoft and Linux desktop provider Linspire aka Lindows announced a broad interoperability, technical collaboration that also includes intellectual property assurances. The agreement promotes customer choice and strengthens the bridge between the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
Delivering interoperable solutions for our customers is an important priority. Through our ongoing collaborative relationships with commercial open source companies, we are demonstrating our commitment to delivering the value and increased interoperability customers want. Covering features from document formats to instant messaging and digital media, our announcement today with Linspire is an important step for our mutual customers. – Bill Hilf, GM Platform Strategy at Microsoft.
Another one bites the dust, but interoperability is so important in our connected enterprises we need more agreements and less lawyers.
