Microsoft just edged out Facebook and proved that it's changed in an important way [businessinsider.com]

And if you didn't believe the love is real, GitHub the so-called "Facebook for programmers," and the hub of the open source world released new stats today about which companies have the most people contributing code to their open source projects.

And Microsoft weighs in at #1, with 16,419 contributors, edging out Facebook with 15,682.

This indicates a massive shift in the way Microsoft looks at open sourcing, and, I would guess, from a developers point of view, the opportunity to earn more.
