Re: Microsoft send Christmas gift to System76
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.
