Microsoft Building Hybrid Open Source Software Development Model
Microsoft is undeniably embracing open source more and more, from its interoperability initiatives to its open source lab and to the integration of alternative development practices into its own model of building proprietary software. One aspect of the Redmond giant's new found focus on open source is the creation of a new hybrid software development model. The initiative is based on research from Paula Bach, with the Open Source Software Lab and Microsoft Research. Bach is looking to enable support usability activities in Codeplex, the company's open source project hosting website. This will be done via a tool designed to fit a framework dealing with introducing usability into open source.
