On Groove and Windows

Dan Gillmor tracks a discussion with Ray Ozzie. The question is, could Windows take away what Groove provides, in terms of information sharing, etc?

At the beginning, I'd say no. Ultimately, I'd say yes. In the end, anything that ties itself to Windows too tightly will eventually become part of it and fall under Microsoft's "Windows Everywhere" strategy. Other systems would be left out. More monopoly. And that can't mean real sharing, since it would mean that to "participate" you'd have to be a Windows creature.

Any environment that aims to be good for information exchange should be platform-agnostic, I think.
