[Osdir-daily] OSDL says no to Microsoft

On Friday, I (Joe Brockmeier) had a chance to have a short talk with Cohen, and
got a definitive answer. Cohen said that "there is no way we would do a joint
research project with Microsoft." If OSDL were to participate in such a
project, Cohen said that when the report came out, no matter what the broad
outcome of the report was, anything negative about Linux would be exploited for
marketing purposes by Microsoft.
