Will they open source Navision or Great Plains ?

[Via LinuxInsider] Martin Taylor, global general manager of platform strategy at Microsoft

And so we [ask] what if we could actually build an engine leveraging the assets of Great Plains and Navision to allow ISVs to build on top of to reduce their research and development costs and hopefully increase their time to market with applications, and also have a better integration story within Windows?

Will they open source Navision or Great Plains platform ? It's one of those game changing strategies. Think about it, considering the overall threat they are facing from open source/Linux community giving away few billion dollar worth of acquired technology shouldnt be that painful.
