"Microsoft has begun seeking Australian Linux talent to help the software giant develop its next-generation Windows operating system."
"An international recruiter from Microsoft's Redmond headquarters has approached Linux user groups in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide seeking software developers interested in joining the company's Windows core networking team."
"The approach, via e-mail, invites developers to attend interviews to be held in Sydney next month. The company is seeking people with a postgraduate university degree in computer science or a related field as well as "very strong abilities to write code in C/C++."
"I understand lovers of Linux/Unix sometimes don't have much love for Microsoft . . . (but) We are looking for the best and brightest to join our team to produce the next generation of Windows," the e-mail from Microsoft international associate recruiter Holly Lindsey says."
