Windows Forms Source for .NET Framework 2.0

Now isn’t this the best news ever! Shawn Burke writes about plans to release the source code for the Windows Forms (which is basically a .NET wrapper around Win32).

The goal is to make the source code and the PDBs available for debugging. Imagine that. Being able to step into the framework code, that’s what I call awesome.

I’ve been a heavy user of Lutz Roeder’s Reflector but being able to step into the code would be heavenly!

Now, can we try the same for the ASP.NET code as well?
