Rob Conery reports that Microsoft wants to expand the OSS landscape for .NET, so they’re recruiting people to lead open source projects built on .NET.
The carrot is an MSDN subscription. I suppose that could be useful.
If I had any interest in .NET F/OSS programming, I’d instead hold out for patent indemnification for all of the contributors to and users of the software.
Give this offer a miss until MIcrosoft can get its story straight.
