I have a friend that is very close to Everaldo. And he claims Everaldo has been hired by Microsoft to develop new Apple-like icons for longhorn.

How will this affect Everaldo's credibility with the FOSS community?

It won't, unless you buy this "Microsoft is the evil Empire" thing. If I had Everaldo's skills I certainly would ask Bill big bucks though.

What Everaldo has done for KDE gives him permanent credibility. Usually when a newcomer takes a look at a modern Linux desktop and says "wow, that looks beautiful and professional", the striking thing is Everaldo's Crystal icons.
