Joining the open source platform has its advantages from licenses to code to the community. Yes, we agree that open source is awesome and you might consider consuming, publishing, collaborating on, or supporting open source for plenty of reasons.

On this decision, Microsoft’s Assistant General Counsel David Rudin said, “A key part of doing open source right is being able to trust that the code you receive complies with its open source licenses. It’s a deceptively hard problem and one that Microsoft is working with the community to address. Our goal is to work even more closely with the OpenChain community to create the standards that will bring even greater trust to the open source ecosystem and that will work for everyone – from individual developers to the largest enterprises.”
