REDMOND, Wash. (AP) - Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) has begun providing free tools so government organizations can better share technological information, in a move it says is aimed at helping cash-strapped customers save money. Oliver Bell, a Microsoft worldwide program manager, denied that the move is designed to make Microsoft more competitive against open-source technology such as Linux. With open source systems, the underlying code and any improvements are shared freely.
