My opinion after this speech is that Microsoft, even if Lewis states the contrary, doesn’t move away from its old position of monolithic corporation. Lewin says that you can choose open source if you want, but developing is adopting a path. If you choose Microsoft, you choose efficiency and high-quality, plus support to all standards and protocols. If you want, you can aslo use their operating systems with other technologies (eg. Mysql).
Lots of empty words.
