Microsoft follows the BSDs' lead...
« on: April 26, 2003, 12:31:49 AM »
From a link glossed over in a Slashdot article, ZDNet interviews Microsoft's Rob Short.  

You can always argue over how truthful it is, but it does show the giant waking up to modern server development practices.  As a fan of the world's most functional reference implementations, I'm amused that his points exactly mirror what the BSD projects have been up to- OpenBSD is a constant security audit, the FreeBSD SMPng project is all about fine-grained locking, and accept filtering exists if you really need a kernel hack for HTTP.  (Okay, *BSD SMBFS is no competition for SAMBA.)

Looks like they can 'ignore' the GPLed world, but have to move when the BSD-free implementations do!   :-P
