Microsoft thinking of an Open Source release


Its un-beliveable to think of an open-source version for windows.But the reports says Microsoft has already taken considerable strides in that direction. Mark Russinovich , Microsoft Technical Fellow says, a future that includes an open-source Windows could happen.Various reports tells around 85 percentage of world computers are running windows, And is the third richest compay.Ever competitor Apple remain on the second .

Instead of allowing the developers to make changes to Windows and other products, it's Microsoft's fingers going run at the keyboard. An open-source Windows would be unlikely in the near term, however. That would require Microsoft to expose its reams of code to public view, theoretically allowing developers to create their own proprietary, incompatible forks of Windows.

The open Source products are gaining more roles in the world of Information Technology Say PHP , LINUX . PHP shows a rapid growth even from the very begining. Now a huge percentage of world websites are powered by PHP. The freedom of using is major advantage. Large amount o web developers are migrating their portfolio to PHP. Linux have had the same way of growth. Over the years, Linux have prroved its strength as an operating system.

 Microsoft has agreed to provide OEMs a free copy of Windows for devices with displays under 8 inches. And it's far more open to running open-source products on top of its Azure cloud services than it was.

It’s quite a change for Microsoft, so long the bete noir of the open source community. But as Russinovich explains, it’s a necessary change. And given how popular Linux has become, Microsoft could go even further, not only allowing open source software on its cloud services, but actually turning Windows into open source software. “Every conversation you can imagine about what should we do with our software—open versus not-open versus services—has happened,” he says.
