It means that they can take the code without breaking the law, unlike
when they steal it.  They've had to payoff quite a few companies now,
for their theft of code, haven't they?

In any case, the reason Microsoft make these announcements is because
they are afraid that they're about to lose customers to alternative
suppliers, so they make their now quite traditional vapourware
announcements.  Now, all the CIOs around the world who've tried Vista
and been unable to use it will be telling their boards that "it's okay,
Microsoft is working on a replacement, we'll just stick with XP for
another few years until it's ready".
