  • From Don Marti's blog, he is no longer Editor at LinuxWorld.com; hes now writing for LWN.net. Apparently LinuxWorld.com is no more, which is unfortunate as I was enjoying the content since Don took over there.

Apparently MSFT won't even have a *schedule* for when the documentation will be ready until January 2009! The settlement requires they be ready by November 2009. if they fail these requirements I hope that some gutsy attorney generals (at either the state or federal level) will rake them over the coals. Between the EU and US anti-trust ruling Microsoft has made it clear they plan to shrug off regulators in every way they can.
