Submission + - Microsoft to license Office 2007 UI for free

ditoa writes: Jensen Harris has just posted on his blog regarding Microsoft decision on how it will license the new user interface in Office 2007. For none competing products the license is free providing you agree with Microsoft's conditions, which are outlined in a 120+ page document. While it is great that Microsoft are not charing a royalty to use such an innovative user interface one has to wonder if the "none competing product" will cause complications for OpenOffice.org if they wanted to implemented such an interface.
