Last week, the foundation mailed a blank hard disk to Microsoft to use it to copy the windows 7 source code, and then sent it back to the foundation, it said.
"Microsoft can free windows. They already have all the necessary legal rights or the means to obtain them, and whether they choose to do so depends on them. We are ready to help Microsoft as much as we can The free software foundation explains.
IT House learned that Microsoft had previously said the open source world had become particularly important to it. 鈥淲e want Microsoft to demonstrate exactly what it says about its marketing love of open source software,鈥? says the Free Software Foundation. If so, we are ready to provide it with practical help to give it an opportunity to demonstrate this to the world.
How Microsoft will respond is unclear.
