    This is NOT the source code to the Kinect SDK! These are code examples that show how to use the SDK. No source has been 'opened'; these were not somehow previously closed source applications that were open-sourced, as they are not applications at all: they're demos, and were not previously available in a closed-source version (because that would be silly and defeat the point).
    In fact, all this code was previously (and still is) freely available as part of the full Development Toolkit. The only news here is that these code examples are now available separately rather than as part of the bundle, and under a different license (but they don't allow anyone else to add to or modify the repo).
