Microsoft on campus
For some reason, Microsoft wants to hire many MBAs this year, so is out in force on Chicago GSB's campus. The managers present are all very nice, but where I want to talk about Palladium, "Trustworthy" Computing, and .NET integration, they're talking about MSN Shopping. In general, they don't seem to know about the other stuff, so I'm guessing that the real corporate strategy is not handled by these guys. One thing that is interesting is that last year I used to get blank stares whenever I mentioned Linux, but this time everyone knows what it is.
