Bah, they never recruit ME...

Oops. The Open Source guru Eric S. Raymond claims to have received a stray standard recruitment email from (ta-daa!) Microsoft?!

As you can imagine, those are the things in life that really get a hacker's "RAM swapping", so he bleats back the second most spiteful reply since Monkey Island... o_O

Comments:

ESR thinks a bit too highly of himself. The letter was basically a form letter from a recruiter, not quite an official offer letter or anything. Then he goes and responds with a childish rant.

Microsoft makes something on the order of $3 BILLION \*profit\* every quarter - yeah, I'm sure they are just soooo worried about one loudmouth zealot.
