Microsoft offers treats to Linux hackers

Jul 31, 2007 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

Microsoft's Windows Embedded team is offering “the biggest selection of [free] apps outside of Moscone Center,” in connection with next week's LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco. The “apps,” in this case, are appetizers, plus free beer and wine.

In addition to free food and drink, the company promises that “Windows Embedded executives Mike Hall and Dan Javnozon will be in attendance along with Windows Embedded MVPs, to mingle and discuss any questions you may have about Windows Embedded operating systems, including Windows XP Embedded, Windows Embedded for Point of Service, and Windows Embedded CE 6.0.” Of course, they're also hoping for some tough questions from the LinuxDevices crowd — so don't let them down!

Warning: This could happen to you!

The event will take place on Wednesday, August 8, from 6 to 8 PM, at the Microsoft-themed “Connection Cantina” at Jillians, in the Metreon across from Moscone Center.

Microsoft held a similar event at last year's San Francisco LinuxWorld. A report from that event can be found on our “evil twin” website, WindowsForDevices, here.
