.NET (dotGNU too) "Last October I blogged about our plan to release the source code to the .NET Framework libraries, and enable debugging support of them with Visual Studio 2008. Today I'm happy to announce that this is now available for everyone to use. Specifically, you can now browse and debug the source code for the following .NET Framework libraries."

Non-GPL, and pretty much useless :/

Not quite useless. As it is now open-source (!free: this is as free as GPL'd software is), we can look forward to a new round of system attacks thanks to the visible security holes.


"Open Source" does not mean that the code is available somewhere around the net but reproducing or even looking at it is illegal. .NET's distribution license isn't even near an open source one.
