Facebook makes some of its core libraries open source (C++)

For Facebook with 900.000.000 users one of the most important things is performance. Core libraries of Facebook are written in C++, and some of these libraries are now open-source on github: https://github.com/facebook/folly. See also the blog post http://herbsutter.com/2012/06/02/facebook-folly-oss-c-libraries/ and the discussions in this post where other C++ libraries open sourced by big companies are mentioned. There is already someone working on getting the libraries to work under Windows and Visual Studio at the fork: https://github.com/jbandela/folly/tree/vc11/.
