Submission + - Microsoft's New Attempt To Dominate Robotics

An anonymous reader writes: IEEE spectrum reports [http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/robotics-software/052010-microsoft-shifts-robotics-strategy-makes-robotics-studio-available-free] that Microsoft's Robotics Group is coming out today to announce new world-domination plans — at least for the _robotics_ world. The company is making its Robotics Developer Studio (RDS), which includes Microsoft's CCR and DSS runtime toolkit, available to anyone for free. Why make it a freebie? Because it wants to expand its RDS base and get a grip on the robotics development space, hoping big thing$ will come out of it. The MS-brained bots are coming.
