Apparently, a couple of program managers at Microsoft have started shopping around a survey to Linux users and Linux User Groups asking what they like about Linux and what improvements they might suggest to Windows.
My goal is to help us identify capabilities, improvements, and features that Microsoft should be focusing on to help our customers over the next 5 years or so.
I am particularly interested in hearing from Linux users, and get their input about what they feel should be the priorities. In particular, I would like to better understand what it is that makes Linux and Open Source solutions so useful for you.
It will be interesting to see if these guys still work for Microsoft in a week or so. I wonder if it’s something the company has sanctioned.
