Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The Microsoft CodePlex.com team has donated $25,000 to the Mercurial project, responding to the recent appeal by the project leader, Matt Mackall. Earlier this year we added Mercurial as a choice on CodePlex to provide an option to our users to use a distributed version control system. Since then, there have been over 1,500 new projects using Mercurial, as well as numerous projects that have migrated from other forges to CodePlex.com.

"While Team Foundation Server is still the most used version control system on CodePlex, our users are clearly benefiting from having access to Mercurial for their open source projects. The CodePlex team is happy to be able to offer our community of more than 17,000 projects a choice. With Mercurial as an important feature of CodePlex, we are excited to be making this donation to help support the Mercurial project."
