Little quick quote from today's Microsoft Special in the Irish Times:
p5, "Software puts a hard edge to our economy" (Puff piece for Cathal
Friel of the Irish Software Association)
"He also noted that Open Source software - which is developed by large
communities of programmers and distributed for free or at low cost -
is also going to have an effect on the software market"
"He believes the open source movement is actually stifling innovation,
because fewer programmers will develop software without the financial
incentive of success"
Still nothing in the Tech section on the patents debacle. Perhaps her
Geraldineness was afraid to rattle the bag ahead of an 8-page
commercial spread for Microsoft?
