Microsoft gives away the MSDN library July 29, 2006

Posted by Matsu in Information Technology, Microsoft, Software, Technology, Windows/Microsoft.

According to this Microsoft blog

Free Download: MSDN Library May 2006 Edition

For the first time, we’re making the MSDN Library freely available for download from Microsoft Downloads. Previously, the Library was only available for download to MSDN subscribers. The current download is the May 2006 Edition and future editions will also be available when we release them.

Is this too good to be true, or just too bad it’s true and doesn’t matter? You decide. If you decide it’s a good thing and you want to download your own copy, you will find it here.

Microsoft is increasingly doing things that feel like Open Source, and a few that almost even are Open Source. At ApacheCon, they talked about Atlas, and they had a big presence at the O’Reilly conference, promoting Port25 (http://port25.technet.com/) which is their new opensourcey thing, although I’m not quite sure what it is, or what it has to do with SMTP, if anything, or if that was just a clever, if meaningless, name.
