I know Carbide.vs is discontinued, but there' are many developers still want to use it as they are more familiar with the VS environment. I can understand that Nokia had to put dedicated resources to it for development and support.
But now its just gone, and anyone who is familiar with VS cannot use it.
So, why not make it open source?
It will be then completely driven through the community efforts, and Nokia does not have to worry about support and feature enhancements.
BTW, I'm was a hardcore user of Carbide.vs and I really miss it.
