Marquee de Sells: Chris’s insight outlet

Chris Sells also comments on the jQuery thing and I have to say I respect that man! Let’s hope his best-case scenario pans out:

… is that Microsoft learns to play nicely in this world, submitting features, changes and bug fixes to the jQuery source tree in a way that’s consistent with the vision from which jQuery sprang, making it work better for Microsoft customers and non-Microsoft customers alike.

that Microsoft will be shipping jQuery with Visual Studio going forward. We will distribute the jQuery JavaScript library as-is, and will not be forking or changing the source from the main jQuery branch. The files will continue to use and ship under the existing jQuery MIT license. We will also distribute intellisense-annotated versions that provide great Visual Studio intellisense and help-integration at design-time.

Another win for ScottGu and Microsoft! Well done! And this I believe is the way Microsoft should continue to do business in the future. Some might see it as embrace and extend, and in some respects it is, but in a good way. :) Take my word for it.
