Microsoft’s GNU/Linux-Hostile Vice President Quits

Posted in Free/Libre Software, GNU/Linux, Microsoft at 6:57 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

ONE of the most gruesome people at Microsoft has been Gerri Elliott, whom we mentioned recently for her strategy and involvement in programmes against Free software and against GNU/Linux [1, 2]. She even interfered with national educational panels. Well, the good news is that she’s out, probably ahead of massive layoffs [1, 2] and negative results.

I missed this: Gerri Elliott, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of its Worldwide Public Sector business, is out.

Given the things that Gerri has done to harm people’s rights and their freedom, it’s reassuring to hear that she may be taking an early retirement, so she can’t inflict more pain and damage from within other companies.
