Microsoft’s CodePlex Foundation

Microsoft has established CodePlex foundation – a non-profit foundation to promote open source. Unlike the previous open source attempts, this time Microsoft has explicitly talked about collaboration with other open source foundations and communities. I see this as first step by Microsoft to acknowledge good Windows open source work happening outside Microsoft. I hope that this is a sincere and long-term attempt and not a marketing gimmick to balance its notorious image in the open source world through its dirty competitive marketing strategies and numerous patent attacks on open source products.

Say your thought!
