First with his own company Ximian, founded together with Mono chief architect Miguel de Icaza, after its acquisition now inside Novell. A few months ago he has been named 'Technologist of the Year' by the VarBusiness magazine for his work around the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. Since then he has been promoted to Chief Technology and Strategy Officer for Open Source, besides the desktop he is also overseeing Novells server business now.

There is loads of other things for them to do, here are a few examples;

1: Argue that Pepsi is better than Coke.
2: Discuss why captain Kirk was a better captain than Picard.
3: Try to work out if Dominoes or Pizzahut have the quickest delivery times.
4: Write complaints letters to TV companies, even though they did not watch the programme.
5: See who can get the biggest flame when they light their farts.

There are countless others, feel free to come up with a few ideas for these bored geeks.
