Microsoft Licenses Get OSI Approved

Shawn Burke announced the news that last Friday, Microsoft had two licenses they have been using for their open source initiatives approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI). There were two licenses approved:

  • Microsoft Permissive License (MS-PL)
  • Microsoft Community License (MS-CL)

They have both been renamed to better reflect their meaning - Microsoft Public License (MS-PL) and Microsoft Reciprocal License (MS-RL).

What caught my attention about this is that the NuSoft Framework is licensed under MS-PL, which means we are now under an official OSI license.
