Microsoft details how it will release a shared-source implementation of C# in conjunction with Corel. Note: the implementation will be designed for FreeBSD and Windows.

"Microsoft today announced it will work with Corel Corp. to build a shared source implementation of the C# programming language and common language infrastructure specifications that it submitted to ECMA in October 2000. Designed to be used for academic, research, debugging and learning purposes, the implementation will run on FreeBSD and Windows and will be published as source code under Microsoft's Shared Source licensing framework."

"'First, we took the core Microsoft .NET technologies to the W3C and ECMA standards bodies for standardization. Now, with Corel, we're creating an implementation under our shared source philosophy,' said Craig Mundie, senior vice president of Advanced Strategies at Microsoft. 'This shared source implementation of these standards demonstrates Microsoft's commitment to open standards in .NET and will provide a native XML Web services programming environment across operating systems.'"
