Microsoft Shared Source isn’t Open Source – for now

Posted by David Hunter at 11:04 AM ET.

Yesterday Microsoft revised the terms for its Shared Source program, but said they had no plans for formal OSI approval as Open Source. Today, Mary Jo Foley has an update:

Microsoft officials repeated that they are holding off from seeking OSI approval of its new licenses for a variety of reasons. Representatives from the Redmond software vendor did meet with “a quorum” of the OSI board to obtain initial feedback on the licenses, as noted in an OSI-issued statement on Microsoft licensing.

Details by following the link. She suspects there is some negotiating going on.
