The Register: “Eric Engstrom was one of a number of key management who departed as the MS
anti-trust trial wore on. He started and led the Direct X project, was general
manager at MSN, and testified on behalf of the Evil Empire in the 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.”
