    Microsoft to be fined $2.4M a day ...

    Slashdot reported and interesting article today concerning a huge fine hanging over the head of Microsoft,
    due to its inresposiveness to open up Windows and provide better documentation for other vendors to increase the overall interoperability.

    Well its all in the article ... Its imo interesting to follow-up ...

    Also I'd like to add another link..

    Microsoft was also ordered "to disclose complete and accurate interface documentation which would allow non-Microsoft work group servers to achieve full interoperability with Windows PCs and servers".
    This would make the ldap interconnections between linux/unix and windows lans a lot better..
    So I'm all in for it..
    Thanks, Neelie Kroes !!

    I hope they open up the exchange connector too, so you can work directly against instead of via the ximian-exchange-connector module, which IMO doesn't always work perfectly ....
