Microsoft to share source code with India.

CALCUTTA, India, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Microsoft has agreed to share its source code with the Indian Government.

Peter Moore, Microsoft's Asia Pacific chief technology officer, said that the decision follows the strategy of making the company's source code available to governments around the world.

"Microsoft had a long track record of supporting governments in technology and allowing them to bring together services that are necessary for the country's people," Moore said.

However, some in India see this as a clever move to boost Microsoft's product sales in the country by tapping the largest buyer in India.
