Microsoft === Open Source

In my dream world, Microsoft is truly open source. Some years ago, you won’t see Microsoft and Open Source on the same sentence. But times they are a-changin’:

Just a digression on Phil Haack’s post, look at the acronym naming convention for three letters or more, Microsoft is pretty much consistent on it. Hence Microsoft’s Base Class Libraries acronym is named as Bcl, i.e.:

You can also notice this on the latest framework for our world domination, ASP.NET MVC. Its namespace in the framework is not named as System.Web.MVC, it is named as System.Web.Mvc.

Happy Computing! ツ
