Microsoft Interoperability

Late last month Microsoft introduced their interoperability initiative, launching a campaign whose mission it is to convince people that Microsoft is committed to openness and standards compliance. This announcement came 5 days before the EU fined Microsoft a record $1.36 billion in an anti-trust lawsuit that has been ongoing for many years.

Microsoft seems to be playing catchup, opening up development and designer tools to students for free, giving away free copies of top software in their heroes happen here campaign. The future is open and we are seeing how it affects business models of even the biggest companies out there.
