The enormous software company, Microsft has recently announced that it is open soucing the entire .NET framework, a new initiative by the world leader in technology. Microsoft seems to believe that open-source model of software development is the next big thing in the tech world. Microsoft’s open-sourcing of server-side .Net technologies is a big step for the proprietary desktop software legend. However many feel that .Net still has a long way to go in order to catch up with open source Java.

As part of this new transition, in the open-source version of .NET, Microsoft intends to making the framework cross platform. This would mean for the developers that they must now know to develop .NET applications that can run on either Linux or the Mac operating system.

Even though Microsoft has open sourced bits and pieces of .NET in the past and eventually created the .Net Foundation in April. It would appear that Microsoft has finally realized the importance of attracting developers who are skilled in working with an array of open-source technologies to build cloud applications comprised of multiple components. Software development today is far different from what it used to be, when programmers had to use propriety tools to code applications that didn’t need to function across myriad environments.

S. Somasegar, Corporate vice president-Developer Division, Microsoft Corporation says “This is a huge change for Microsoft and a change that has been slowly and steadily building up for the last couple of years. This move to open source .NET comes from a fundamental realization of where the world is and what application development now looks like”.

On the other hand experts in the .Net and Java spectrums are not happy with this move. “Just open-sourcing the technology itself does not mean they’re going to gain traction and build an ecosystem around it,” says a Java expert whilst an analyst at Directions on Microsoft has said that open-sourcing the .Net components will have restricted benefits. “.Net core becoming open source will be helpful to certain audiences — current .Net developers, developers working on cross-platform solutions, and some ISVs, for example — but it won’t substantively change any of Microsoft’s revenue dynamics or strategic offerings. Microsoft’s paid .Net offerings as part of Windows will always be the most stable and best-supported version of the framework”.

The industry has changed notably over the years since Microsoft reigned supreme, and experts point that change to the rise of open-source technology. In order for Microsoft to gain back its supremacy, it’s high time for the tech giant to adopt open source in order to avoid the risk of falling behind its cloud competitors such as Google and Amazon.

Microsoft’s open sources .Net Framework

The enormous software company, Microsft has recently announced that it is open soucing the entire .NET framework, a new initiative by the world leader in technology. Microsoft seems to believe that open-source model of software development is the next big thing in the tech world.

However many feel that .Net still has a long way to go in order to catch up with open source Java.
