    Microsoft announces OSS package management for Windows - CoApp

    The Common Opensource Application Publishing Platform (CoApp). Developer states it'll be better than using SFU or cygwin and it's been blessed by Microsoft.

    I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Microsoft offers much-needed fix for Windows OSS development

    Was just about to post this when I found your post, I too am optimistic that there will finally be a sane easy way to deploy and hopefully configure open source software on a Windows network.

    If this does go ahead as planned and is actually put into general use by the open source community I think it could mean a huge boost in usage for larger networks of computers. Certainly if it is used on OS products I will consider them much more seriously for deployment on the networks that I manage.
