[Observations] Microsoft Changes Attitude Toward FOSS?

After years of looking on FOSS as a disease, Microsoft have started talking with, and indeed collaborating with, the FOSS commmunity. For some the change is too unreal, with many taking a cynical, unbelieving attitude. For others, it's a godsend.

Check out Port 25's posting about a recent cooperation between Microsoft and Mozilla, titled
Why I invited Mozilla

Then, if you have the time and bandwidth, there's a 1 hour video interview with Bill Hilf of the Open Source Software Lab at Microsoft

It seems almost too good to be true. What do you think?
