Git for Visual Studio and TFS

Git Support Added to Visual Studio and TFS | Channel 9:
"Git repos are now fully supported on Team Foundation Service and that Microsoft has released Visual Studio Tools for Git. You can now choose which source control system you prefer, either the centralized version control provided by Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) or the distributed version control provided by Git"

Microsoft embraces open-source Git for development tools @ infoworld

The implementation is based on original libget2 library

so Microsoft is officially using, selling, and supporting code written by Linus Torvalds himself!

Next step: embedded Linux VM in Windows :)
And why not, Android VM for Windows and Windows Phone.

For now, Windows Azure can run Linux, as well as Java.
That is Open Microsoft 2.0

Hybrid Wing Aircraft = 1/2 Fuel

NASA Demonstrates Manufacturing Methods for Hybrid Wing Aircraft | MIT Technology Review

"Combined with an extremely efficient type of engine, called an ultra-high bypass ratio engine, the hybrid wing design could use half as much fuel as conventional aircraft. Although it may take 20 years for the technology to come to market, the manufacturing method developed at NASA could help improve conventional commercial aircraft within the next eight to 10 years"
