Releasing the Source Code for the .NET Framework Libraries!
After programming with MFC (a lot!) and writing the ATL book, it was *very* difficult for me to live in a world without the source code to figure out how something was working. All of us have since moved over to Lutz's most excellent Reflector, but that's still no substitute for actually stepping in and now ScottGu has announced that we'll have the ability to browse and debug with the .NET library source code, integrated into VS2008:
Jay R. Wren:
The source is NOT open. It is just viewable. The source is still 100% copyright Microsoft, with all rights reserved.
Have you considered that by posting this screenshot with the MS Code in it, you are actually violating MS's copyright to this source code? You are.
Read the MS-Restrictive License. You have no right to republish this code. This is the same as posting a clip of a song by your favorite music artist. It is a copyright violation.
Opening these sources is going to be a nightmare for Microsoft in terms of enforcing their copyrights.

That's how it works in the music, you can play those short clips without issues.
Now if I reposted a whole class.cs would that still be fine as it's not the whole product just a tiny part of it.. Hard to say.
