    WiX

    It looks as if Microsoft has begun their first open-source project. Check out Microsoft Trying Soft Sell To Beat Open Source for more info.

    P.S. The project website, which is hosted on SourceForge, can be reached at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wix.

    that's actually a low amount of bugs... there's no such thing as bug free software... most projects have a lot of bugs that only get noticed once the user base increases and the software is being used in more and more different situations. seeing as how it's been downloaded over 41,000 times i'd say the bug count is very low. but then again, i'm sure most people are just looking at the code hoping they can find some dumb piece of code so they can say "oh look at what a huge m$ mistake i found" instead of actually using the software

    They released fairly useless software, it was a stunt. I doubt many people were like "I need the source for Wix sooo bad" Also, I can't find the article, but didn't some bug finder program (I forget what they're called) find a myriad of bugs in the kernel?
