Een paar dingen uitschakelen die anders per default worden geactiveerd zoals daar zijn : je microfoon die aanstaat en alles opneemt wat je zegt, de keylogger die is geactiveerd (jawel!), automatische backup van alle documenten op je computer worden naar microsoft verzonden en zij zullen die doorspelen aan de autoriteiten 'indien zij dat nodig achten' - No need for a warrant with microsoft sir!

Welcome to GitHub, .NET!

Welcome to GitHub, .NET! | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Microsoft announced at their Connect event last week that they will be open sourcing much of the .NET technology stack, as well as moving development of these technologies over to GitHub.

And within hours of the announcement contributions were already being accepted!

You can browse and search the projects that Microsoft has made public on GitHub over on their landing page.

This isn't the first team from Microsoft to join us on GitHub - the Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Open Tech, TypeScript and ASP.NET teams are already on GitHub, collaborating in the open with the community.

If you're one of the 6 million developers building applications using .NET, this is your chance to contribute to the future direction of your development stack. Check out the GitHub help site or GitHub Guides to learn more about contributing to open source.
