Kudos to Microsoft for supporting jQuery

I just read on ScottGu’s blog that MS has decided to support the jQuery javascript library. That’s a great decision. It’s a really elegant library, and it makes sense to tap into something that already works and has strong community and momentum.

It’s also a significant departure from the "Not Invented Here" attitude that dominated while I worked at Microsoft. I’m pleasantly surprised.

I’m curious now to see how long it will take to ship solid support for the Ruby language atop the .NET runtime and Visual Studio. That would be really compelling from the developer tools standpoint, and a big step towards supporting Ruby on Rails.
