There are many things that Microsoft takes a beating for, many deserved nut also many are undeserved. One such issue involves the company’s position on Open Source.

Yup! I said it! let’s throw down!

These are products that ScottGu has direct oversight of, but there are many other Open Source initiatives happening at Microsoft.
