MicrOSoft pt 7. – strange but true

I encourage you to spend a couple of minutes to take in the video interview of David Zülke, the lead developer for the Agavi Framework, which you can find in the April 6, 2010 post on the Make Web Not War site.  While my MicrOSoft series has highlighted, from an open source software lawyer perspective,  the company’s evolving and warming relationship with open source software, it is very interesting to get David’s perspective on this development and some of the reasons behind it.

Early in the interview, the topic of Microsoft’s sponsorship of the open source conference is raised.  When asked about the meaning for developers of  Microsoft’s engagement of the open source community, David gives the excellent answer set out below:

“I think for many of us it is really strange.  I think Microsoft, they have realized that they need to do this….”

Strange but true!
