Microsoft Releasing Source Code for .NET

posted in Microsoft, Technology |

Microsoft is releasing the sources for the .NET frameworks including most of the base libraries, XML, and even stuff like WPF. This is great- it will make it a ton easier to debug things, understand performance implications and more.

There are some people complaining that they aren’t open sourcing this stuff, but I think that is unfair. What is great here is that they have realized that they can still retain the rights to the IP while providing these sources to developers to make the platform better to build on.
