Microsoft embraces Eclipse.org with Silverlight 2

October 14 2008

So in a move that many will raise an eyebrow to, Silverlight 2 ships today ... with support for development within the Eclipse.org development environment. Yes, Microsoft is embracing Eclipse.org.

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of The Eclipse Foundation, posted a blog entry about this. It seems that Microsoft is funding a third-party, Soyatec, to do the development. Soyatec is already an Eclipse.org member. You can read about the tools at Eclipse Tools for Microsoft Silverlight site.

I think this is a great move by Microsoft. The more places someone can do development with Silverlight, the more likely people are to use it.
