Entity Framework is Open Source Now!!!

Just in time when I have invested my time heavily on Asp.net MVC + Entity Framework, MS has announced that EF is now Open Source. This is huge. This will help me better understand the inner workings of EF and better design my applications.

As a reminder, Asp.net MVC is already Open source. Going through the code helped me understand how model binding work. 

Earlier I was nHibernate guy. Now I have totally switched to EF and this news further solidifies my leanings towards EF.

EF source code can be downloaded at http://entityframework.codeplex.com. It can be downloaded as a GIT repository. I was actually expecting a Zip file. But again, I can live with git based download too. 🙂
