In addition, it has launched an open source project of its own called OpenUI5, and company executives say they are now allowing their developers to consume and contribute to open source projects. It’s too soon to call the company a true open source advocate, but it is taking steps in that direction.

Microsoft, of course, has also been warming to open source and had a surprisingly large presence at OSCON as well.
