This is bizarre. Mickeysoft is searching for a Linux product manager. Any
guesses on what this is about? Perhaps, it's just an advocacy position
whose job it is to "debunk" linux...


Primary responsibilities include developing and executing Microsoft's
Linux strategy, providing competitive technical analysis of the Linux
operating system, coordinating and driving cross-company Linux efforts and
providing the necessary tools and resources to educate the field sales
force on Linux. This is a key position within Microsoft with very high
visibility, both within and outside the company. The ideal candidate will
have solid technical skills in both Unix and/or Linux and Windows NT,
extensive knowledge of the Unix marketplace, a minimum of two years
experience in a product marketing role, excellent PR and public speaking
skills and a proven ability to manage both people and processes to drive
projects to completion. A BA/BS degree and an MBA or equivalent experience
