Big companies, especially those with several developers on their payroll, usually take advantage of the permissive licensing of open source projects to fork them for better control.
Bloomberg however has decided to stick to the upstream version of TypeScript, and Palmer says that’s primarily because of Microsoft’s stewardship: “It’s open source in every sense of the word,”
“A clear benefit of using shared open source technology,” writes Palmer in the blog “is that when you have a problem, more often than not you find you are not alone. And when you find answers, you get the joy of sharing them.”
