For a little Thursday amusement, take a peek at John C. Dvorak's latest column
at pcmag.com. He has an—ummm—interesting view of Linux and open source software, but he thinks it is time for Microsoft to adopt it: "The fact is Microsoft is zigging when it should be zagging. It needs to open a new division that has nothing to do with the rest of the company, so Open Source code can't come into contact with its commercial code. Here it can evolve an Open Source and Linux policy with products for sale and support services. The company needs to get back to an even footing with Google in the phone and, soon, the pad business. It may not catch up with Apple insofar as innovation is concerned, but it can't afford to languish and constantly be humiliated by seemingly pointless and dead-end rollouts.
