Even MS Used Open Licensing To Their Favor

So evidently this report shows that MS wants to slam the GPL license and the BSD license for software, but they themselves used it to create the TCP/IP stack on WinOS (starting with NT). Without that, MS probably wouldn't have had TCP/IP on WinOS as soon as they did and we'd probably still see too much NetBEUI traffic out there on our nets.;sid=2001/6/19/05641/7357

In fact, there's proof that they didn't rewrite pieces of the BSD code and used it as is inside their earlier TCP drivers!
