Yeah right. Microsoft open source *snigger*.
From reading an article before on this, as far as I could make out Microsoft
is making part of the Win32 _API_ open to SOME sources. IMHO this is just a
marketing ploy to live up to Linux and other open source operating systems so
Microsoft can now _claim_ to be "open source". It might be useful for wine but
we'll see. I hope nobody is counting chickens yet.
