Microsoft After much, much, much speculation, Microsoft let the cat out of the bag today: due to weak results, Microsoft is going to cut 5000 jobs. Those 5000 jobs will disappear over the course of 18 months, with 1400 jobs being cut immediately. Quarterly results, as well as the cost-cutting measures, were made known in a press release today.

Sad for the people loosing their jobs. But hopefully some good will come out of it, and by that I mean better products from Microsoft. It sounds like Windows 7 is a step in the right direction.

the next right step is to buy SCO or QNX port their driver infrastructure and .net to the OS and sell an Open Source Unix product .
