Re: sarge and the Wall Street Journal

Peter, Michael, your responses were immensely helpful.
Thank you.  When I called, voice mail picked up, and I
did leave a voice message combining Peter's structure
and points with Michael's solid content.  Whether the
reporter Guth phones me back, indeed whether we get any
response at all, remains to be seen; but the people over
at the WSJ are some of the smartest reporters found
anywhere in the world (as far as reporters go), so we'll
give them a fair chance.

Lacking time and wanting to get the earlier message out
quickly, I transcribed only part of the article earlier.
Here is the rest of it, if it is wanted.


  SourceLabs is one of several start-ups trying to
  position itself as a one-stop shop for businesses
  that want to use open-source software.  It plans to
  certify that various forms of open-source software
  work wll together and meet corporate computing

  The company was founded last year by executives and
  managers from Microsoft and BEA Systems Inc.  Its
  main financial backing came from Ignition Partners,
  a venture-capital group whose co-founders include
  Brad Silverberg, a former Microsoft senior vice
  president who led development of the Windows
  operating system, the leading competitor to Linux.
