It was an interesting meeting. Regarding the Eric S Raymond article, there'=
been lot of discussion on other boards. Couple of points that I disagree =
with ESR: MSFT did not offer him a job. As one of Microsofties pointed out =
on Slashdot, it was a mass email. And second, the email wasn't technically =
sent by MSFT but one of their vendors. Therefore the v in front of microsof=
address. I think ESR went overboard with this email and also by calling =
himself the worst nightmare for Microsoft. Gave himself toooooo much credit=
I guess. That's my2cents.
