A (humble) attempt to publish news from the trenches where Free/Libre/Open-Source Software is brought to the mainstream -- and Francois Letellier's blog, too

Bill Save our (French) Souls

Peter Sayer just published a paper in InfoWorld about "Gates lend[ing] a hand to French developers".

It just made me think how small the world is. It's like the world is shrinking. Let's see... JBoss announced a partnership with Microsoft 2 weeks ago. As Peter noticed, JBoss CEO Marc Fleury is French. This spring, INRIA announced a partnership with Microsoft (in the news again these days). Yesterday Microsoft lended a hand to French developers. Well, thanks Mr Gates.

Gates -- is it a pun? Would you say the gatekeeper lends you a hand when he's reaching with his hand to insert the key in the bolt of your gate and lock it? Knowing Peter and his [British] humor, I'd not be surprised the pun was intended!
