MANILA, Philippines--Microsoft Philippines is set to open a "satellite" open source network lab in the country soon, local executives said in a briefing.

Although declining to give details, the local executives said the Microsoft open source network lab will test the interoperability of the company's products, including the new operating system Vista, with other environments

More details will be revealed in the next two to three months, Albert Dela Cruz, platform strategy manager of Microsoft Philippines, said in a briefing.

"We really don't compete with the open source development and the licensing process. Competition is with open source products," Dela Cruz stressed.

The software company has created Port 25, a portal of all initiatives and efforts being done by Microsoft with the open source community.

Bill Hilf, who a former IBM executive, has been the force behind Microsoft's move to embrace open source and open standards, Dela Cruz said.

Microsoft has also created a special section within its official website for open source software.
