Microsoft.Net goes Open Source after Sun did it for Java

Some hot news for Microsoft Fans and Developers using the .Net platform. Microsoft is open sourcing .NET framework libraries.

We’ll begin by offering the source code (with source file comments included) for the .NET Base Class Libraries (System, System.IO, System.Collections, System.Configuration, System.Threading, System.Net, System.Security, System.Runtime, System.Text, etc), ASP.NET (System.Web), Windows Forms (System.Windows.Forms), ADO.NET (System.Data), XML (System.Xml), and WPF (System.Windows).  We’ll then be adding more libraries in the months ahead (including WCF, Workflow, and LINQ).  The source code will be released under the Microsoft Reference License (MS-RL).

You’ll be able to download the .NET Framework source libraries via a standalone install (allowing you to use any text editor to browse it locally).  We will also provide integrated debugging support of it within VS 2008.

When you debug a .NET application and hit a breakpoint in your code, you’ll now be able to see a debugger call stack that contains detailed file and line number information for the .NET Framework classes and methods in your application:

Sounds interesting.? Are we nearing the day in which we understand completely what the Exceptions mean

Clocked 100kmph on ECR

I took my bike out this Sunday afternoon for a short drive. I just felt like going for a long drive. It was Sunday afternoon and I could feel the cool air against my face. Was thinking what to do… So went straight to the petrol bunk got the bike ready for the drive and hit ECR.

The roads were virtually empty. I was extra carefull and never went too fast unnecessarily.

On one stretch , I decided to step up the gas and put the bike on full throttle.

It was an awesome feeling . The bike wont go past 101 kmph or atleast I cant control it. I saw some vehicle coming in the opposite direction and I had to stop my adventure to avoid any kind of risk. Slowed down and coasted to Mahabs. Spent some time there and headed back home.

It was so crowded damn the return journey. No different than driving inside the city. I was shocked when I came to a screeching halt after I saw a pile of dust in front ( It was some vehicle flying )

A major accident due to reckless driving. Nearly 3 cars and a van were seen in a bad shape.
