Mark Russinovich vs Microsoft Marketing


“This slide…this being a keynote, the marketing people had to make a pass through the deck. And this thing is technical, which is a little bit different from what they’re used to, they didn’t understand any of the slides. But they still wanted to feel like they were adding value, so they threw this slide in.

And of course, I don’t understand this slide. But I hope you like it.”

 – Microsoft Technical Fellow, Mark Russinovich

    Marketing can be useful if you don’t let them hire stupid people. For some reason they always do.
