Microsoft finally joins open source Eclipse Foundation

Paul Krill | March 9, 2016
The software giant was a holdout for years, but is now an official member.

Today's Eclipse move and Microsoft's recent Xamarin acquisition share a common theme: a renewed emphasis on embracing developers regardless of language or IDE, Hammond said. "I assume to goals are to make Azure and Windows more attractive to devs as development and deployment platforms." Participation in Eclipse is another sign from CEO Satya Nadella that things are different now when it comes to cross-platform reach, he said.

Microsoft's joining Eclipse follows the company's latest monumental embrace of Linux, when it unveiled plans on Monday to port its SQL Server database to the platform.
