MSDN License Giveaways for Open Source Projects

I am totally excited to support the folks over at and their giveaway.  They are giving away MSDN  Licenses to Open Source projects in need of said licenses.  As a Microsoft MVP, I was given three MSDN License’s to help spread the the goodness of VS2010.  As a supporter of Open Source I think the best way to help stimulate the .Net Open Source eco system is to provide license to those who need them. I have tried a few times to get the folks over at the Codeplex Foundation to start up a program, but no luck yet.  That is why I am happy to see the MVPs who are part of the blogging community pulling together to help stimulate these project.

I want to thank Jimmy Bogard and Keith Dahlby from the Los Techies crew for donating some of their licenses too.
