If you're looking for a good Linux testimonial, you might want
to start with Eric Engstrom, a former Microsoft executive who
started and led the DirectX project as well as doing a stint as
general manager at MSN and some time as a Microsoft-friendly
witness during the anti-trust trial:
"Now, with a group of former Redmond colleagues, he's
backing Linux. Their start-up Chromium is a Linux 'pure play', and
he's effusive in his praise of the operating system.
'Linux is an awesome operating system,' he says. 'On the server
side Linux is the most advanced operating system out there today,"
he tells us, as it lacks the architectural baggage of Windows. 'It
can be much faster.'"
