Submission + - Open Source Software seeping into the .NET Developer world (outercurve.org)

dp619 writes: In an interview, Microsoft Regional Director Patrick Hynds says that avoidance of open source components by a large part of the .NET developer population is abating. "...While some may still steer clear of the GPL, there are dozens of FOSS licenses that are compatible with Windows developers and their customers," he said. Hynds cites NuGet, an open source package management system was originally built by Microsoft and now an Outercurve Foundation project, as an example of FOSS libraries that .NET developer are adopting for their applications. Microsoft itself has embraced open source — to a point. It has partnered with Hortonworks for a Windows port of Hadoop, allowed Linux to run on Windows Azure, and is itself a Hadoop user.
