Looks like Mr. Bill Gates said open source kills jobs and warned various governments across the world to think about it during his Asian tour recently. One more interesting comment in his talk was about open source not being upward compatible.

"[Open source] doesn’t guarantee upward compatibility or do that kind of integration [for seamless computing to work]".

If Mr. Bill Gates is not aware there has been a horror story related to upgrading VB to .NET frame work with lot of incompatibilities .

One more news is that Windows XP service Pack 2 is delayed . You know why? it breaks some of the existing applications which is a great compatibility issue. I wonder when Gates talk in reality.
