During the last two years, Microsoft was attented the "solutions linux"
(French LinuxExpo). Everything was calm, and things went pretty
smoothly. We simply ignore them. OpenSource represent a Market for M$,
so what? People running their booth are paid for it, they are doing
their job. They were attending this event more as a spectator than
everything else.

We have nothing to prove to eyes of Microsoft employees. Stay
yourself :-)

The only thing that it reveals is that FOSS is a real problem for
Microsoft. They consider us a real threat.

My 2¢,
