Oslo in the open

This morning I started a thread on Channel 9 about Microsoft's new initiative called DevLabs. One of the projects is Small Basic, a simple BASIC-like programming language that is used to teach kids (and adults) to program. The discussion on Channel 9 was primarily focused on Small Basic, and 1 thing lead to the other, so I started checking out the assemblies that were installed with Small Basic using Reflector.

I discovered that Small Basic uses Microsoft's mysterious and much anticipated modeling framework code-named Oslo. You can read how I came to this discovery in this post on Channel 9.
