Microsoft, Hadoop, and Open Source Contributions

Edd Dumbill:

Microsoft’s goals go beyond integrating Hadoop into Windows. It intends to contribute the adaptions it makes back to the Apache Hadoop project, so that anybody can run a purely open source Hadoop on Windows.

In the open source world contributions are measured in code or documentation or donations. Less so in interviews or PR announcements.

So far Microsoft doesn’t seem to know this game. But if its intentions are true, the community will help.
