Microsoft's Linux Guru Woos Coders with Freebies

As Microsoft continues to try and convince its enterprise customers and the open-software community that it is committed to interoperability and working with them, Bill Hilf, its director of platform technology, gave a session at the annual LinuxWorld Conference & Expo that provided a look into the Linux/Open Source Software Lab at Microsoft's Redmond campus.

In a session titled "Managing Linux in a mixed environment...at Microsoft? A look inside the Linux/Open Source Software Lab at Microsoft," Hilf told the audience of more than 100 that he had Linux and open-source credentials, having worked with the software at both eToys and IBM before moving to Microsoft Corp.
