  • Microsoft finally posts the stolen source

    Posted on December 10th, 2009 at 13:18 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    A month ago, I wrote about Microsoft pulling a utility that apparently contains stolen open source code. The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool lets you put a bootable copy of the Windows 7 installation media on a USB drive.

    Word comes from Rafael Rivera, who first noticed the transgression, that – one month later – Microsoft has finally done what it said it would do, and posted the source code.

    Why the delay? Lots of conjecture. So far, as best I can tell, no hard facts.
