Microsoft Phils to start open source lab!
« on: August 29, 2008, 02:14:24 AM »
I thought sharing this information.

I found out Microsoft Philippines is starting to create open source lab ...
see this excerpt.. http://http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/breakingnews/infotech/view/20080807-153256/Microsoft-creates-open-source-lab-in-RP

Quote
The lab will be located at the National Computer Center (NCC) headquarters in Diliman, Quezon City. It will be stocked with hardware and software and will serve as a test and evaluation facility for open source developers who want to make their applications interoperable on the Microsoft platform....

Abet Dela Cruz, Microsoft Philippines platform strategy manager, said Microsoft now recognizes open source as a "first class" citizen, alluding to the movement\'s growth and adoption.

To support this claim, he noted SourceForge, an online repository of applications built by the open source community. Out of 147,000 projects, he said 77,000 of these applications run on the Windows platform, which far outnumbers those built for Windows alone.



- as i see it gone were the days that Microsoft rule the world... The web is currently evolving.
