In another example of the company’s ongoing embrace of open source software, Microsoft has become a premium sponsor of the Open Source Initiative.
From the announcement:
Microsoft’s history with the OSI dates back to 2005 with the submission of the Microsoft Community License, then again in August of 2007 with the submission of the Microsoft Permissive License. For many in the open source software community, it was Microsoft’s release of .NET in 2014 under an open source license that may fave first caught their attention.
