Microsoft "CodePlex is an online software development environment for open and shared source developers to create, host and manage projects throughout the project lifecycle. It has been written from the ground up in C# using .NET 2.0 technology with Team Foundation Server on the back end. CodePlex is open to the public free of charge." Microsoft goes open source, and it also launches pay-as-you-go computers.

The vast majority of open source code is unsupported abandonware. That's what MS was referring to when it called open source "unreliable". And they had a point.
