Microsoft to Share More Technical Secrets

Seeking to satisfy European antitrust officials, Microsoft said Thursday that it would open up and share many more of its technical secrets with the rest of the software industry and competitors.Microsoft executives, in a conference call, characterized the announcement as “a major step” and a “strategic shift” in the company’s business practices and its handling of technical information. They also portrayed the moves as only partly a nod to the continuing challenge Microsoft faces from Europe’s antitrust regulators.
