Microsoft has revealed the source code for the original, 1990s-era File Manager that is so well known to all of us who were dragging and falling on Windows 3.0. The code, which is accessible on Github under the MIT OSS license, will assemble under Windows 10.
File Manager utilizes the various-document interface or MDI to display many folders inside one window. This interface style, which altered extremely with upcoming versions of Windows, was the standard for almost a decade of Windows announces.
These little gifts to the open source community are certainly fun but not everyone is happy. One Hacker News reader noted that “Most of the MSFT open source stuff is either trash or completely unmaintained. Only a couple of high profile projects are maintained and they jam opt-out telemetry in if you like it or not (despite hundreds of comments requesting them to go away). Even Scott Hanselman getting involved in one of our tickets got it nowhere. Same strong arming and disregard for customers.”
Eventually these “gifts” to users are certainly a plenty of fun and a great example of nostalgia-ware. Let me know how yours compiles by Tweeting me at @johnbiggs. I would love to see it working again.
