Submission + - Microsoft Not Affected by GPLv3 After All? (arstechnica.com)

something_wicked_thi writes: ArsTechnica has posted an article that offers a counterpoint to the Groklaw coverage of Microsoft's statement regarding whether they are subject to the terms of the GPL. The ArsTechnica article takes the stance that the FSF might be wrong in their assessment of the situation and that Microsoft probably has not done anything to subject themselves to the GPL but are being cautious nonetheless.

The Groklaw article starts by suggesting the statement is laughable and seems to offer little evidence to support this conclusion. On the other hand, the ArsTechnica article has a more traditional style of journalism. Could Microsoft have a point, after all?
