MICROSOFT HAS promised to help Firefox and Thunderbird coders get their open source programs working on Vista.

The head of Microsoft's open source software lab Sam Ramji said that Vole had approached Mozilla to if it's interested in making sure the Firefox browser and Thunderbird e-mail client run under Windows Vista.

Ramji said he had set aside office space for open-source developers and would make Microsoft engineers available to Firefox and Thunderbird coders.

He will be holding a lab in Redmond in December 2006. Normally Vole only invites commercial developers.

There has been no comment from Mozzarella to the offer yet.
