    @kettch:

     

     

    my statement is that out of an imaginary marketshare of 10million software users

    only 10% might have forked their own version of customization

    75% of the opensource users will TRY to avoid forking an opensource

    15% will take a balanced risk of extending and not overriding the core

     

    so, if Microsoft has two products

    Sharepoint [Closed source]

    EPiserver like [Open Source]

    there will be

    90% of the users who will benefit from the opensource

     

    My point is:

    Microsoft opensourcing xamarin is a great gift to the community

    Microsoft should gift an enterprise level website framework to the community as well
