WiX Project Logo My one-hundred-and-ninety-fifth podcast is up. The WiX Project was the first big Open Source project out of Microsoft over 10 years ago! Scott talks to project lead Rob Mensching about how the WiX Installer project got started. How much trouble did he have with Microsoft bosses and Legal? What's next for WiX?

Warning, Rob talks fast, so you want want to slow this one down a smidge. ;)

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

Telerik is our sponsor for this show.

Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate aboutTelerik is their commitment tocompleteness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Loved this podcast! I've been a fan and user of WiX for a while, so it was great to hear some background behind it and to hear it is still moving forward.
