No, Microsoft supposedly licensed Spyglass with a promise to pay them for every copy of their derived software (IE) it sold. Then, as of IE 2 or 3 (IE 1 was bundled with the Windows 95 Plus Pack, a retail product, and I think IE 2 was Windows NT only), they went to a free distribution model which meant Spyglass got nothing else from them, and were left with an unsellable product (since their competition was free) to boot. I've never heard what the terms were surrounding the Sybase deal, but I do know that Microsoft has never been in the habit of giving unrestricted licenses to SQL Server away.

Why is this "Informative"? "Insightful" I could understand, but given that it purports to be the "full quote" from Legere but blatantly isn't, in no way is it "Informative".

I did actually like this actual quote from TFA:

I’m not sure what they are doing with it – stealing wireless access for their entire business, powering a small cloud service, providing broadband to a small city, mining for bitcoin -- but I really don’t care!
