Microsoft plans to purchase Teamprise-related assets of SourceGear LLC, which enable developers using Eclipse IDE or operating on multiple operating systems, including Unix, Linux and Mac OS X, to build applications with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server. Development organizations will benefit from increased integration in heterogeneous environments, as well as reduced time and complexity associated with application development tasks. Functionality from Teamprise Client Suite will be integrated into Visual Studio product line beginning with Visual Studio 2010. Developers leveraging the Eclipse IDE (integrated development environment) or using non-Windows platforms, such as Unix, Linux and Mac OS X, will be able to turn to Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server for their projects following the integration of SourceGear’ Teamprise Client Suite.
