Microsoft offers Mozilla access to Vista developers

Share

Maybe Microsoft are keeping away from situations that could turn into more anti-trust problems, but they do seem to have been offering the hand of friendship to rival software manufacturers of late. They’ll be working with Google next… (well, OK)

This time, they’ve offered Mozilla, the makers of the increasingly popular open source Firefox browser, spaces at Microsoft’s Windows Vista Readiness ISV Lab, a four day event that gives access to Vista developers.

“In the past the company has only invited commercial software developers to these labs,” said Sam Ramji of MS’s open source software lab.

It sounds like Microsoft are becoming open to casting the net than just the commercial developers, even to those who are eating away at Internet Explorer’s market share. Firefox currently has 14% of the browser share compared to Internet Explorer’s 76%.

  • Microsoft Reaches Out To Firefox Developers

    Why does it feel like Microsoft is trying to sell me a used car that someone was driving in New Orleans, before Hurricane Katrina hit? Firefox has worked just fine without Microsoft’s help up until this point, so what is the problem? Wait a minute, I just answered my own question. My bad.

    I’m sure Mozilla & the Open Source community would love some help dumbing down their software to Microsoft’s sub-standards. Why put out good software for free, when you can put out average stuff and make billions.

    For some reason I just can’t the get the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale out of my head when thinking about Microsoft’s “offer”. Maybe Microsoft’s intents are genuine. Maybe they really do want to help. Maybe.

    If it was me, I would cover all my bases. Politely listen to what Microsoft has to say. Offer them as little as possible about the future direction of your products. Reveal nothing that can come back to bite you. Sincerely shake their hands, and after they are out of eyesight, count your fingers, just in case.
