MS Releasing Code on SourceForge

Reading Craig Anderas blog earlier I noticed this post, basically Microsoft for the first time ever have released some code under an OSS approved licence.

The code actually sounds really useful, it's called the Windows Installer XML (WiX), and allows developers to create Windows installer databases from XML source. Apparently this is how internal Microsoft people (currently Office, SQLServer, BizTalk, MSN Messenger ... ) create setup files.
WiX consists of a complier, a linker, a lib tool and a decomplier.

Here's the link to the project at SourceForge, and here's a more detailed explanation of what WiX is, and how it came to be released as OSS.
