  • Blog Post: Finally An Unbreakable Linux!

    The challenge of being a fan of open source while working at Microsoft is that people often assume that it's not possible for Microsoft to appreciate open source. If there's one legacy that I'd like to leave at Microsoft to this point, it's that I fought hard for a CodePlex to be built because I believe...
  • Blog Post: My name is Sandy and I am a Wikipediaholic

    When I was much younger, I used to pepper my dad with constant questions about how things worked or who invented what. My dad would always respond with the same thing: "go look it up". Sitting in our family room was a bright, shiny set of Encyclopedia Brittanicas. Now, I don't know if my dad made me...
  • Blog Post: Hey Zealousy - Reprise

    As I was going through my Inbox, I spotted a comment to my blog that seems especially connected to my last post. Apparently, last week, I was indirectly "Digg"'d (Dug?) when someone wrote about the OpenOffice ads and linked to my post from February . Well, the post was writted tongue-in-cheek, but I...

We talked about how Apple, Linux, and many others have extremely passionate customers...
  • Blog Post: CodePlex: The XBox for Community Developers

    I once blogged about "Glory and Danger" and the idea of taking on GotDotNet. One of the things I hinted at was, while we would do a revamp of the site, we did want to consider something from scratch that would be a step above. Then, I patiently stayed quiet about what we were doing. Well, the cat is...
  • Blog Post: Now I have a Microsoft Cube to go along with my Apple Cube

    I just saw this post from Korby Parnell about getting the famous Microsoft "Patent Cube" . As Korby mentioned, I too received a Cube. He even referred to me as his "co-conspirator"--I think I like that term and I've certainly been called worse. :) Korby also mentioned that we also get a copy of the front...
  • Blog Post: OpenOffice ads and suggestions for future Sun ads

    I’m sitting on the bus right now and I see a bunch of ads for OpenOffice,org. I suppose putting ads on the route that runs from Redmond to Seattle is pretty clever as they’re sure to get throngs of Microsoft employees looking at it and surely having a reaction. It’s not so much that they are advertising...
