Microsoft open sourcing .NET and bringing it to Linux+OS X

Postby Norbert » November 12th, 2014, 6:44 pm

Microsoft is going to open source .NET, and will be bringing it to Linux and OS X.
Not just that, from the looks of it, they'll be using a - the MIT - Free software license too.

Here is the announcement: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnet/archive/2014/11/12/net-core-is-open-source.aspx
And also: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnet/archive/2014/11/12/announcing-net-2015-preview-a-new-era-for-net.aspx
And here is the source: https://github.com/Microsoft/dotnet -- actually just some links to other GitHub projects that contain the actual sources.
And here: http://referencesource.microsoft.com

By the way, it was posted only a few hours ago. How did you find it so fast?

Finding it fast; probably just looks that way because of time zones settings/differences.

I've looked a bit more into Microsoft's announcement and people's reactions, and it seems this is only about the server-side .NET core stack.
No GUI components or whatever. I know too little about it all to have a real opinion, but it still seems like interesting news.

When I posted that, the main page of their blog said "2 hours ago". Now it says "22 hours ago".

It looks like the next Microsoft Visual Studio will be able to export to non-Windows platforms.
"Build for iOS, Android, Windows devices, Windows Server or Linux"
