EWeek.com has a story out today about a startup in Bellevue that aims to provide information about open-source projects. The idea is to help people figure out the best open-source software for their needs, the article says.
And get this: The company, called Ohloh, was started by former Microsoft executives.
Ohloh isn't exactly new. The company's Web site said it was founded in 2004 as a way to "provide more visibility into software development." EWeek says its founders are Scott Collison, a former director of platform strategy at Microsoft, and Jason Allen, who previously managed XML Web services at the company.
