CompTIA meeting in Copenhagen

I am participating today Monday 1. June 2004 in a seminar on eBusiness and interoperability coordinated by CompTIA and sponsored by Microsoft Denmark. Admittedly, I feel a little bit schizophrenic participating in such meeting with my background as an open source advocate and co-founder of the Danish Open Source Vendor Association.

However, my clear impression is that everybody including Microsoft realize today that open source is here to stay and that it makes more sense – in particular also from a business point of view – to participate in a constructive dialogue instead of throwing mud at each other. I am not so naive, though, that I don’t see Microsoft’s role in the SCO-IBM lawsuit and possible in the recent smearing of Linus Torvalds and his role as the author of Linux.
