Shipping Windows Forms Source?
February 9, 2005 1 Comment
Sparked by this post (which starts “I want to deliver Windows Forms source code to you.“), some people inside Microsoft may want to start sharing source code. Kudos to Shawn I say, but as you may have guessed, it may never happen. One of the supposed reasons? “inappropriate comments”! Now, I've left some doosies around myself, I have to admit, but I'd be hard pressed to consider that a legitimate reason not to release code (even with the netscape are weenies debacle from a couple years ago). If nothing else, the code could surely be scrubbed before release. Sounds more like an excuse really, but at least the issue is now being openly talked about inside MSFT, which is a start. The seeds may just have been planted.
