    Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation, writes a length blog post, and says: "I suggest we celebrate this moment".

    He makes some excellent points. "Open Source" was never a war. There was no "us versus them". Open Source was always about inclusion, not exclusion. Microsoft joining in any open source movement is a good thing for everyone (especially Microsoft customers), and they are as welcome as anyone.
