Stephen Fry to work at Microsoft?

I can't believe I missed this great article by Stephen Fry last Saturday in the Guardian - a friend forwarded it on to me and suggested we were separated at birth. In reading it I think he's way more of a geek than me. In fact, I'm in the process of moving jobs at the moment so he could be an ideal replacement to lead my team. As well as running several Mac's he confesses to running:

"Windows XP and Vista. Linux, too, in different distributions, including Mark Shuttleworth's increasingly popular Ubuntu, although I also take Red Hat's Fedora and Yellow Dog out for a run from time to time. It is very important to me that you believe that I will be as impartial as I can be in the great schism that has riven computing since the mid-80s"

His blog and weekly column is now a must read. If you're reading this Stephen do let get in touch as we have a great job here waiting for you!
