[itBE] MICROSOFT: Open Source is a Bigger Threat than Google

post #1 of 2

Quote:
Speaking at a conference in New York on Wednesday, Microsoft’s chief architect, Ray Ozzie, said open source is a bigger threat to the software juggernaut than Google is. He says open source developers are not restricted by the best interests of shareholders and potentially are, therefore, a stronger market force.

While true, however it is harder to get some kind of support for open source programs if your just an average computer user. People like on OCN know where to look for info, where as little billy will take it to geeksquad who will tell them that the mobo is fried when its a simple software issue.
