johnno (666) writes "In an interview, Jim Zemlin, the Linux Foundation's executive director, talks about the desire to interoperate with Microsoft and discusses the desktop outlook for Linux. He answers questions on the kind of legal protection Linux requires, whether anything ever come of the Microsoft protest that there's Linux code that they patented, the Foundations legal defense fund, Linux penetration on desktops and handhelds and breaking Microsoft's stranglehold on the market. He also discusses Microsoft's recent move to open up their documentation, and working with Microsoft — "We'd like to have a place where developers can come and work on making Linux more effectively interoperate with Microsoft products. And we'd like to do that in the open-source way that's not tied to any specific marketing agreement, that's not tied to any specific contract, that is an open process that can be participated in by anyone in the community," Zemlin says."
