Former Linux Architect Moves to Microsoft

I was amazed by this news from eWeek.

The leading Linux figure, Daniel Robbins, the founder of Gentoo Linux and its former chief architect, has announced that he has accepted a position at Microsoft Corp.

In a brief note to the Gentoo Foundation Inc. community, Robbins said he was leaving Gentoo and that he will be \”helping Microsoft to understand Open Source and community-based projects.\”

Well if Microsoft will open an ear, they might eventually learn from this dude about open-source. I don\’t if that\’s a bad thing but it definitely looks awkward that they are hiring Linux expert.
