Microsoft "Open Source"?!?
Posted on: 01/07/2000 08:50 PM

According to this article over at Linux Today, Microsoft's E.U.L.A. (End User License Agreement) for their "Zone Integration Server" meets all the requirements for being open source! Here's part of the E.U.L.A.
"b.Modification. You may modify the Program or create derivative works and copy and distribute such modifications or derivative works, provided that you also: (i) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change so that the recipients know they are not receiving the original Program; (ii) cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole to all third parties under the terms of this License; and (iii) provide notice to users under the same terms of distribution as set forth in Sections 1(a)(i), 1(a)(ii) and 1(a)(iii) above."
Hmmm... A sign of things to come?
