I'm now very tired of Microsoft's openness pledge. I think there's more substance to it than many in the open-source community (No one seems to have noticed the ability to plug in things like ODF to Office, for example), but understand the skepticism. Microsoft has spent thirty years earning that skepticism. It's not going to fade with one announcement.
So let's talk about something else, please! I'm sick of it. :-)
How about we start with Arsenal? And maybe we could then talk about Cesc Fabregas? And how I think Arsenal will pound Juventus in next year's Champions League, Fabrizio? ;-)
These are the things that truly matter. I might be able to live under despotic patent regimes. But a life without Arsenal and soccer? Some things are too horrible to contemplate. :-)
