Party like it's 1995! Microsoft 3D Movie Maker is open source  ↦

The coolest thing about this story is that the entire endeavor was apparently prompted by a random developer tweet! If you’ve ever wondered what all goes in to opening the source of historic software products like this one:

This code was restored from the Microsoft corporate archives and cleared for release.

  • Developer names and aliases were removed, with the exception of current employees who worked on the original release who consented to keeping their names in place
  • The archive consisted of several CDs, some of which were for alternate builds or products, and have been excluded
  • The code does not build with today’s engineering tools, and is released as-is.
