NT supports the TCP/IP protocal, and that is certainly open. By yourQuote:> This is actually *not at all* a good case in which to use Microsoft as

logic, NT must be open and, in effect, Linux and Windows are competing
on relatively equal grounds because a standard to which they code is
open. Be aware that X is governed by a BSD copyright, which is a good
deal more liberal than he GPL we know and love - being that anything can
be done, closedly, with the software. Because I code to an open
standard doesn't mean I am open.
