Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"Kirkland, WA - Still recovering from the news that a Microsoft employee has moved to their block, the residents of Boulder Creek subdivision are faced with even more surprising news: Gerald Kwon, Microsoft employee, is actually a nice guy."

"There was a concerted effort to prevent Mr. Kwon from moving into the neighborhood. After losing the battle some residents are thinking of reconciliation. Others are still seething. "Just because I led the campaign to prevent Microsoft employees from moving into the neighborhood, doesn't mean that I have a problem with them. Some of my best friends are Microsoft employees," said block captain Fred Cho. "I just think that certain standards need to be upheld within the neighborhood, and those people [Microsoft employees] have a habit of ignoring standards."

"Mr. Kwon has been very happy with his new neighbors despite some unsettling incidents. "I've had a couple of burning penguins left in my front yard, and someone keeps distributing pamphlets that say 'Do you know there's a Microsoft employee in your neighborhood? Watch out!' Other than that it's been pretty nice."
