Why did Microsoft join the Linux Foundation’s AllSeen Alliance?
When people think of open source they don’t usually associate Microsoft with it. But the company recently surprised many when it joined the Linux Foundation’s open source AllSeen Alliance. The AllSeen Alliance’s mission is to create a standard for device communications.
Has Microsoft changed its attitude toward open source in general or is there another reason for its uncharacteristic behavior? Computerworld speculates on what might have motivated Microsoft to join the AllSeen Alliance.
