Windows XP Source Code Posted On Internet

Last week, the supposed source code for Windows XP (and other Microsoft products) was posted on 4Chan. Many suspected this was just a hoax, but one user has attempted to compile it and says it is authentic. It seems to be missing some components, but the portions that did compile appear to be actual Microsoft code. Many proponents of Open Source software have asked Microsoft to release the source code, but so far they’ve declined. Needless to say, this leak was not sanctioned by Microsoft but it will be interesting to see what come of this.
