    .NET for *.nix

    I saw this on CNN, thought it was extremely interesting, especially the bit about a BSD version of the .NET development platform. Also mentions M$ is releasing source for the .NET architecture to educators, this is big news for third parties and geeks all over. Have a look

    I think their release of the source code is just a way for them to brain wash programming students into thinking .net. But I am surprised that they didnít use .net as just another thing to hold Linux back.
    Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.

    This was covered in Linux.conf.au 2002. For those who are interested I posted the tutorial notes on it here.

    The full source for Common Language Infra Structure and C# are available from ECMA or Microsoft for everyone. .NET is a shared source initiative.
    This is why theres been .NET ports to linux and freeBSD for over a year.

    This article is about releasing source for actual .NET-applications.
