Microsoft to Reveal Windows Code is a Reuters story with some details on how, as the first steps towards compliance with their antitrust settlement with the U.S. Justice Department, over the next several weeks the software powerhouse will "disclose 385 bits of computer code and internal operating rules, previously kept secret, that outside software developers can use to write programs to run on Windows." Here is a bit more on these 385 bits: "Microsoft said in addition to 272 pieces of code it also would reveal 113 proprietary software 'protocols' that computer server makers can license to make their machines work better with Windows desktops." The article also goes into the steps still being sought by the nine states that have not accepted terms of this compromise with Microsoft.
