    Hi Guys,
    I was recently at Redmond( Microsoft office) for interviewing as I am a college student. And I saw a guy with a white Macbook at the premises of Microsoft building:D. And I asked the interviewer who came to receive me, what is this guy and this machine doing here :eek: and he was totally intrigued with my question and happily said when a guy who was in elevator can show his macbook to Steve Balmer then he's pretty ok :D:D:cool::p hahahaha

    What are your comments on it :eek::p

    Is it Mac-inization at Redmond :rolleyes::p

    Microsoft is doing development on Apps for OS X. Example being Office 2008. My friend interviewed at Microsoft for a Linux position. I guess the phrase, "If you can't beat it, steal it" comes into play. Or I think thats how it goes. :)

    Not quite sure that qualifies as blasphemy. Heresy, maybe. Anyway... perhaps he had windows on the thing :rolleyes:

    Why blashphemy? Microsoft does not produce computers - only peripherals and the software to run on them - be they Sonys, HPs or Apple Macs. Gotta have something to run Vista on.

    I have a couple of friends who work at Microsoft, and I know a guy who works high up on the Zune team. He is very upfront that most of the entire unit uses Macs, and some of them own iPods. I just got a kick out of that :D

    (living in Seattle, everyone works at Microsoft)
