Microsoft vs. Europe: Possible truce, with Windows 7
,----[ Quote ]
| It's a sign of the growing dÃtente that
| Courtois himself, a 25-year Microsoft
| veteran, is currently serving as an official
| "ambassador" for a jamboree called the "Year
| of Creativity and Innovation" organized by
| the E.U.'s executive commission â the same
| body that has been taking Microsoft to task
| over its business practices. He will be
| sharing a podium in Brussels in early
| November with the commission's president,
| JosÃ-Manuel Barroso, and the other 14
| ambassadors. "We're trying to be a partner
| with Europe," Courtois says, pointing out
| that Microsoft spends about $600 million on
| research and development in Europe, and
| provides thousands of jobs in the region.

| We've known for a while now that Microsoft, or someone at Microsoft buzzes
| our blog and website from time to time. And yes...we have a mole...did you
| expect anything different from us?
| They've also spent some time at the Lindependence site. Gratifying but
| ultimately, not really a big deal. Not for one silly little website.
| But when you have several sites banging the same drum and that drumbeat
| begins to resound with echoes that are impossible to ignore, you get results.
