Microsoft Embraces Open Source Web Development

Microsoft has included open source software in its WebMatrix development kit.

"Microsoft's WebMatrix development kit is pitched at Web developers of all types, allowing easy access to presently available software and Web hosting providers," The Inquirer's Lawrence Latif said. "Of particular surprise is Microsoft's decision to promote open source software packages within Webmatrix, including the popular WordPress and Joomla content management systems."

Latif said that while WebMatrix is a sort of Web developer's app store, "the fact that Microsoft has decided to stock it with open source software goes some way to showing how far open source projects have progressed."
