Submission + - Microsoft finally open sources Windows 7 tool

Krystalo writes: Ars Technica reports:

Microsoft has open sourced the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (WUDT) by releasing it under the GPLv2 license. The code is now available on CodePlex, Microsoft's Open Source software project hosting repository, over at wudt.codeplex.com. The actual installer for the tool is now again available for download at the Microsoft Store (2.59MB). Last month, the company pulled the tool after GPL violation claims, started an investigation, and then took responsibility for the violation.
