Good Luck Tom Hanrahan!

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 11:44 am

Tom Hanrahan, formerly of Linux Foundation, is to head Microsoft’s Linux Interoperability Lab, a lab MS is required to establish as part of the MS-Novell deal.

He has my very best wishes. I am only against the patent covenant in the MS-Novell deal that mention Linux. Strip this off, MS-Novell deal is good for both party. Hanrahan role suggest it is working on interoperability. It might eventually chunk out software that is proprietary to Novell or Linux. Nonetheless, both parties and Linux can learn from their experience and create a better IT ecosystem for all and that can only be good.

I only hope he will emulate Bill Hiff, director of MS Linux Lab who manage to keep his cool mind despite being around MS hot heads.
