Microsoft turning to open software?


It’s not Linux, or even Open Source, really, but it’s something. Microsoft, starting this week, is going to be more open with its programming to ensure greater interoperability and to make for a more portable solution for your data.

This is a big reversal for Redmond, as Microsoft is known for its closed nature when it comes to its software.

It’s a bold step, and definitely one in the right direction.
