Does it mean that HP printers will start misbehaving with Free Software ?
Isn't it clear that the agreement is to ensure that products conform to
standards (along with many other goals)?
HP and Microsoft were always good partners and that didn't affect HP's
policy towards Free and Open Source Software till now and I don't think it
is going to change after this deal.
