.NET Framework Library Source Code now available

with 2 comments

Microsoft has made the source code for the .Net framework available.  It has been released under a read-only license which has an interesting clarification: “the license does not apply to users developing software for a non-Windows platform that has “the same or substantially the same features or functionality” as the .NET Framework.”  Does that mean that the Mono team can look at the source code and not be bound by the read-only clause, or that they can’t look at the source at all?  I’ll have to read the license and find out. 

There are detailed directions on how to get source code debugging set up in Visual Studio 2008 posted here [blogs.msdn]:
