LXer: Microsoft removes barriers for open source on Windows 8

Published at LXer:

Microsoft has removed a potential barrier to open source developers planning on using Windows 8 by reversing its decision to only allow its free-of-charge developer tools to create Windows 8 Metro applications. In a blog posting, Microsoft has declared that developers using the free-of-charge version of Visual Studio will now be able to write standard desktop applications for Windows 8 and noted that its move "will enable developers working on open source applications to target existing and previous versions of Windows".
