What do you folks make of THAT? (Since I know a few of you have some Stallman esque leanings--(see people bashing gnome because of .net compliance in the form of mono)

After their recent $1.4bn fine from the EU Commission for not complying to open source more of their software they have no choice but to start doing this.
Hopefully some commision will take a fight to them over DRM rights and all it's implications.
