Change of business model by Microsoft

Earlier this year I wrote that a Hungarian leading figure of Microsoft told a smaller audience that Microsoft wanted to change its business model. (See here.) writes the followings on the blog:

“Yesterday I went to a law and economics conference about intellectual property. It was co-sponsored by Microsoft, and one thing that surprised me was that two of the seven papers presented were about open source. I also found the attitude of the Microsoft people at the conference to be refreshing. They were open-minded and willing to discuss, without pushing their point of view too hard. Somehow I’d expected Microsoft to be less human. I was pleasantly surprised.” See here.

Things start to happen, it seems.
