Microsoft's CodePlex con is scarcely setting the Open Source world alight with excitement and seems to have been the non-event of last year as far as the Free Software Community is concerned.

It's hardly surprising that no-one seems ready to risk their reputation by accepting a directorship of such a potential disaster and no-one from the Free Software Community has the slightest interest in working on Microsoft;s superannuated .NET Framework, except "M$ Miguel" and his Mono cronies, of course

CodePlex sounds as full of vapour as a politician's promise and twice as useless.

Nothing but a PR move

Just like with their release of code for the Linux kernel MS's announcement of CodePlex was just to take some steam away from the FSF and the Linux Foundation as well as get some positive PR in the community. Unfortunate for them most of us aren't as gullible as they think we are.
