Google wins one for open standards: Microsoft to adopt DAV

0. phoneArena 21 Jan 2013, 16:16 posted on

This one was something of a mess. It started just before the holidays, when Google announced that it would be stopping Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync support for new free users, and would only accept new paid enterprise users for support. Microsoft was surprised by the move, and lashed out, but now the tech giant is yielding, and will adopt the DAV open standard...

It's a give and take world.. M$ needs to conform regardless, in the world of tech things change daily.
I too barely use any google programs.. I do have a gmail account though. I stopped using goggle search and set up bing and bing rewards

But in 2006 it was a different story ---
Our friends up north [Microsoft] spend over five billion dollars on research and development and all they seem to do is copy Google and Apple.”

My laptop is dual boot (UNBUNTU/XP) and workplace is all LINUX only for desktop with one XP session in vamware. We do have to keep XP (no plans to upgrade to anything beyond that) as we have to address support queries from clients on crap like Outlook. We use Mandriva/Ubutnu for Linux.

Forgot to add ... on servers it is CentOS and no plans of any windows server at all. Have stayed away from windows on server for 12 good years now ... we sdtarted off Immunix Linux then went to RH7 as that was the latest in those days:)

Microsoft has a long history of paying bloggers and writers and gifting laptops for talking trash against competitors.

the coolest thing about this is that WP will support native being that android does not :). I'm glad to know that Microsoft is committed as ever in this best for their users unlike Google and its crusade against competition.

What is best for Google is to put it's users first. With Key lime pie set to release so. I would expect them to be hard at work on that and not trying to clean up after MS.

So they told you their plans at google? You are so lucky

Whether their plans are what I guessed or others, Google has android, gmail, chrome, Google + etc to build. If MS wants to build locks tell them to make their own keys.

What is "native being" ? You act as if Android doesn't support G+, gmail, youtube, google calendar and contacts natively either.
