education-policy and valuesystem is at the core.
not who imparts the education.
if microsoft is all set to educate and teach FOSS, values of sharing
knowledge, copyleft in software, creativity, science, knowledge and
education, and collaborate with others such as scott mcnealey's
curriwiki and dozens of others, hey! i'm all for it.

if they don't, i am actually more interested to know who else will,
and will willingly offer my energies to that institution and encourage
all of you to help make it a shining example of the dream that gleams
in our eyes.
