Every year, #microsoft sends us a sweet little gift basket and we have no idea why... Go ahead, LOL at the irony. We all are
Happy Holidays!

Kinda like how they used to send the Mozilla folks a cake every year (I think?). Honestly when it comes to MS, the engineering folks (as in the ACTUAL engineers) are pretty great. Weird sense of humour but good well-natured people. Mozilla has done the same back too.

But one day I imagine this will end, and instead Microsoft will send places like System76 copies of Windows 8. "Happy holidays, hope you enjoy our gift! -- Mid-level management at MS". Hahaha.

I heard Jono (from Canonical) talk about how they had a meeting with a group of Microsoft developers. He said once you got past the superficial stuff everyone was the same culturally; nerds that enjoyed making cool stuff. They just happened to work for different companies.
