Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the WiX Toolset's release as Open Source. The impact of this "relatively insignificant geekware tool" (Time, 10 May, 2004) over the last decade and a half is profound. The largest software companies in the world use WiX to create installation packages for their flagship products. When FireGiant launched nearly six years ago, we offered enterprise support for WiX and more companies—of all sizes, across all industries—adopted the toolset. In addition, there are countless Open Source projects that have MSI-based installation packages thanks to WiX. We are proud of the work we've done with WiX over the years, but the future excites us even more.
