    Accountability

    Finally someone pushes for a standard way of reporting bugs and their corresponding fixes. This you have to read....

    So do you think this will help?

    It could work. And I dare say the Linux community would agree, for the most part.......but Microsoft? I don't think they will. They wouldn't go for something that would show the flaws in their products publicly.......it'd be bad for their image.

    But if the IETF pushes it, do you think M$ will have a choice? I don't think they want to alienate themselves anymore than they already are....

    Hopefully they can get msoft to play along. If bill really does change his ways, who are we going to have to blame everything on? I guess oracle.

    Well, this is a kind of old thread, but I just saw this, and it was related.

    Microsoft was actually a part of this. Kind of scarry thought, isn't it. I assume they probably wanted a mandatory 30 day vendor report, but they did have their say in all this.

    thats more than "kind of scary" not only does the rvpd not want public diclosure for 30 days but gives extensions on that 30 days where the vendor is not skilled in

    way scary
