Ok, sensative subject I know. It can be tough to mention Microsoft and Open Source in a positive sentence that doesn’t talk about one hammer on the other. However that is where we find ourselves today. In a blog post on MSDN blogs, Sara Ford the Program Manager for CodePlex which is Microsoft’s open source project hosting site, talked about the CodePlex websites growth over the past year.
In just about every category Sara touches on shows an increase of over 100%. This includes things like visits, unique visitors, and new projects. Maybe this will inspire Microsoft to invest more into their open source initiatives. Yeah, that was probably pushing it a little.
