Microsoft releasing source code for .NET Framework

Filed under: .NET — Tags: — mgvinod @ 12:32 pm

One of the big news that happened last week was that Microsoft is releasing their original source code for .NET Framework as a reference for all the developers. The only bad part is that it is only available from .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008. Anyway, it is still some thing really to look forward to… Till then, I guess we just have to live with disassemblers like Reflector..

It will be also interesting to find out more the licensing under which they are release. Given it is Microsoft and their genetic make-up includes world domination and manipulation strands curled around each other, there must be something lurking under those small prints… so have a thorough read of it before using it in a firm.
