Microsoft's Doug Miller continues to make the rounds of Linux-related events and sites, this time on ITWorld's discussion forum, where he'll answer all comers. "As controversial and emotion-stirring this discussion may become," urges the moderator, "this is a rare opportunity for exchanging views and ideas. Therefore, let's keep this discussion professional."
For those of you who are curious about who Doug Miller is, he's been around the Linux scene more and more lately, strolling the floor at LWE in New York and meeting with Linux media types at COMDEX. His job title is "group product manager for competitive strategies," though ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley calls him part of the Microsoft "FUD squad." By all accounts, he's cheerfully amiable and fairly up-front about his agenda.
