"Microsoft's embrace of MySQL could kill it"
by  Matt Asay:

"For those who have fret about Microsoft fighting against open
source, I have news for you:

Microsoft's impact on open source may be worse as a friend than as an enemy. Over the past few years, Microsoft has steadily warmed to open source, to the point that it now hosts its own open-source code repository and has seen its Microsoft Public License used more often than venerable licenses like the Mozilla Public License or the Eclipse Public License, according to new data released by Black Duck Software.

The open-source world should be worried."

Richard Stallman and the GPL is Microsoft's best friend. Embrace,
Extend, Extinguish.
