On the heels of my recent post about Microsoft and Linux, is this interesting article in SD Times. It is being reported that at MIX 2007, Scott Guthrie (responsible for Silverlight et al) pulled aside Miguel de Icaza to help with technical guidance for Moonlight (the Mono-based, Open Source Linux Silverlight implementation). I think this is tremendous news. Miguel went on to say:
…that the Moonlight project was strongly inspired by Guthrie’s recommendations.
Nice! Let’s hope this cooperation can be seen across other Microsoft-Open Source ventures. I like to hear about this stuff.
What do you think?
