Microsoft is going Public


 Huh? Ok I always wanted to create those misleading article headings you find in magazines and newspapers…


 But this is a first too; Microsoft has extended its Shared Source Initiative to post a project completely on SourceForge under the CPL (Nooo, not GPL). The actual project is the Windows Installer XML (WiX), a set of command line tools that enable developers/ISVs to create MSI packages during their build process. It is a toolset that is used internally to build the setups of products like SQL, BizTqlk, Exchange, Office, etc.) So go and check this thing out! http://sourceforge.net/projects/wix/

    What about workspaces? Wasn’t it more appropriate for MS to post this on their own sourceforge-like site, workspaces?

  3. For more information about the release (and why SourceForge over GotDotNet workspaces) you can check out: http://blogs.msdn.com/robmen/archive/2004/04/05/107709.aspx
