"Speaking with GeekWire, Microsoft Executive Jean Paoli talked
about how the new company will help Microsoft technology work
better with everything else. 'We believe that the subsidiary will
provide a new way of engaging with open-source communities in a
more clearly defined manner', he added.
"Paoli will be the president of the new company, with the aim
being that working outside of normal Microsoft environment will
allow the subsidiary to work much faster on and with open source
technologies. This work will then funnel back into Microsoft."
