Summary: Former Softies drill into the competition
Jawad Khaki, a longtime Microsoft executive who was an early member of the Windows NT development team, is leaving the company at the end of the month.
We have already seen Jawad Khaki in antitrust correspondence.
There is another interesting move however. Gerri Elliott quit Microsoft several months ago after she had damaged Free software and GNU/Linux adoption. We mentioned her also in [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] where concrete examples were given. Well, it turns out that she is landing in Juniper now.
Gerri Elliott, who left Microsoft in January after leading the Worldwide Public Sector division for nearly eight years, landed a job at Juniper Networks as executive vice president of Strategic Alliances, Juniper announced Tuesday.
Now so long ago, Juniper had installed a Microsoft executive as CEO and we saw possible impact. What will be the future impact of Microsoft people running Juniper? It is worth watching closely what happens there. █
