Microsoft and Open Source?

Posted by Charbax – March 2, 2011

I thought it was fun to see a Microsoft booth in the Open Source park at CeBIT 2011, so I went jokingly to ask if it was a mistake, turns out Microsoft has lots of things going on with Open Source around the world.

Should Microsoft and Nokia simply take Honeycomb and improve on that and call it Microdroid?
