Do the folks at MS _want_ us to find them unreasonable?

"The license for Microsoft's Mobile Internet Toolkit, which is in its
second beta release to developers, says that it may not be used with
any software under the Free Software Foundation's General Public
License (GPL) and six other forms of "potentially viral software."
That language refers to open source code's freely available and shared
code licensing agreements. The wording of the license cites the Linux
OS and the Perl scripting language as examples."
