LinuxWorld.com interviews Nat Friedman, CEO of Ximian. "Friedman and de Icaza met at Microsoft. Friedman told me that they met while de Icaza was
interviewing for the Internet Explorer team in Redmond. Friedman was -- hold on to your hats -- a Microsoft
employee at the time, working on the IIS (Microsoft's Web server) project. It boggles the mind. They also met
online in a network set up by and for Linux developers."
