Microsoft sponsor many thinks it should _NOT_ be sponsoring. It's a smiling
crocodile. Plain and simple.

Look. Microsoft, the very same company that refuses to comply with the EU and
make its servers talk to others or be accessible to others, sponsors a
conference on interoperability.


And speaking of "interoperability", Microsoft corrupts the key terms.

It also sponsors PHP.

And Open Source/Linux.
