NuPack was jointly contributed by Microsoft, the foundation’s funding sponsor, and the independent developers of the Nubular (NU) project.
“The NuPack project is significant because two groups of developers - one independent, one from Microsoft - discovered they were working to solve the same problem and decided to collaborate and contribute the combined project to the Foundation.”
Competition is healthy, and keeping Microsoft honest by not letting them communicate on being angels when they didn’t do things right with this project is also the responsibility of the community.
At the end of the day, a certain dose of arrogance in how MS does things has always been what the community has reacted against in the past, and this time around it is no different.
It’s also ridiculous to suggest that any group acting exactly the same way should be treated with the same standards as Microsoft. Microsoft has a monopoly on development tools in the .net sphere, a massive marketing budget, etc etc. This is a reality that is put in the balance when judging their actions, and anyone ignoring this is ignoring this simple fact.
That said, we’re pressing forward with OpenWrap as an alternative platform, and innovating along the way as we’ve done for many months, as we approach our first beta release. No point in continuing the discussion on MS intentions, it was important that it happened, now we know where we stand and we can move on.
