From the Simon Phipps site:

Quote
The European Interoperability Framework (EIF) is still in play, and despite attempts by companies like Microsoft to "own" interoperability and neuter it to become a concept defining a preference for proprietary monocultures, there is still a chance the EU will enact procurement legislation that attacks their de facto monopoly and brings long-term software freedom benefits to European administrations.

The article: http://www.euractiv.com/en/infosociety/eu-push-patent-free-egovernment-news-498694

"Proprietary monoculture" - precisely.
