Reflector – is it the end or a new beginning?

News of yesterday – "Red Gate has recently acquired .NET Reflector. We will continue to maintain a free version for the benefit of the community." – you remember my post about open source? All open source projects have or may have this problem now or in the future – may collide with someone who sees enough profitability in the tool and offers a deal. Btw – Lutz is working for Microsoft. He is a Senior Software Design Engineer in the Expression Blend team. And the company Red Gate is the same that bought SQL Central community site – and from the experiences with that one I think that was a good deal for both the community and the companies involved. So – I'm looking forward how will Reflector 6.0 look like both from features and pricing point of view – meanwhile looking for alternatives as well 😉 (like DILE).
