Hyper-V Program Manager
About 1.75 years ago Microsoft acquired Connectix's virtual machine technology. At that stage I had been working at Connectix for a year and a half on the Virtual PC for Windows product line. As a long time IT enthusiast - it seemed kind of strange to be working for Microsoft - as I have personally come from a background which viewed Microsoft as the 'Evil Empire'.
This was an interesting adjustment period for me on two fronts:
Which leaves me with one nagging problem - for a long while now I have been able to claim 'outsider' status when talking to anti-Microsoft people ('Hey - I have only been here a year - and I am here because of the acquisition, yada yada yada').
But as I am coming up on the 2 year mark at Microsoft - I am thinking that this logic will not fly for much longer. I will just have to give in and admit that I have gone to the dark side - and you will all have to hate me for it :-)
