Moving away from tradition, Microsoft has launched the .NET Reference Source project. Yeah, Microsoft has gone "open-source". Basically, this new feature would allow developers and enthusiasts to view / debug the .NET Framework source code in Visual Studio 2008 IDE.
What's in it for me?
- Scott Guthrie introduces this concept nicely in his blog.
- Shawn Burke's blog is a detailed write-up on this concept and illustrates technical details step-by-step.
Hope this post and the references encourage you to appreciate (or utilize) Microsoft's initiative.
