    Microsoft to open source core Xamarin technologies in Visual Studio

    Microsoft is open sourcing the Xamarin software development kit, and is making Xamarin Studio for OSX available for no additional cost for Visual Studio Enterprise users.

    Microsoft is planning to open source the Xamarin software development kit, runtime, libraries and command line tools.

    Thanks Shawn for this very important news flash!

    At this pace I believe we are within the big and final surprise I believe after July 2016 when we will hear more about open source un classifications in Windows going forward " it will have to happen if Microsoft wants to compete on the world stage of portable and mobile computing going forward"

    Its a dead end if Microsoft keeps Windows in closed source status going forward in many factors then one...

    I strongly believe its just a matter of time Microsoft opens fully their code on Windows right across the board in the very near future if they want to be a step ahead on OS's and where the future is going...

    Apple Inc, is starting to see the light for awhile and the profits and solid reason why closed source doesn't make any sense to have this type of closed box type of thinking going forward, it just makes everything right across the board more difficult for example hardware and driver folks, and the very positive and fast paced app designers that is today the most profitable and most busy sector within IT on the global stage, example look at the great App store by Google and its current status.

    I believe Microsoft and Apple want to benefit and have that type of system and style at the end of the day...
