Microsoft is open sourcing some very nice pieces of technology. They
have reimplemented Ruby, Python, Javascript, and OCaml as .NET
languages. They have released their new dynamic language runtime
(DLR), a sandboxing runtime called Silverlight, as well as the first
two of those four languages, under the Microsoft Permissive License,
which seems like a very open license. OCaml is provided free as in
beer, but under a more restrictive license that might keep it out of
Linux distros.

Here is the Microsoft Permissive License. It is a short license that
doesn't seem to have any weird strings attached.

This is a very significant gift to the open source community, and I
don't see any indication of Trojans hiding inside.
