More on Bruce Perens departure from HP

Open Source

New York Times has an article about Bruce Perens' departure from HP. As I reported earlier, Bruce is no longer with HP.

The main reasons for his departure though seem to be related to the Microsoft baiting Bruce is doing. His latest actions are against Microsoft's backed industry group, the Initiative for Software Choice. This group is persuading governments all over the world to use highly priced proprietary software instead of equivalent open-source ones, which are freely available. Bruce started Sincere Choice to counter the Microsoft led initiative.
