I got goose pimples reading this post on  Good Stuff Nadyne!

On being a Macintosh girl at Microsoft

Here are a few lines from that I liked the most....

Macintosh. Microsoft. Macintosh. Microsoft. To a lot of people, it seems like these two shouldn’t go together. But, here we [MacBu] are: the biggest Macintosh development organisation outside of Apple, and yes, we’re at Microsoft.

A lot of people use our products, but they sometimes forget that they’re using Microsoft products 

I spend a lot of time reminding people that we’re the biggest all-Mac development org. I remind them of the history of Excel and PowerPoint, two apps that started out on the Mac and were only later ported to Windows

I realised something as I typed all of this out. All of this is superficial. Although I might use a different laptop than the majority of the other Microsoft employees, we have a lot in common. We all have a commitment to making the best software that we can. And even though I work for a company that you might think doesn’t get along with Apple that well, we all have a commitment to our Mac customers to give them the best software possible

Awesome stuff!!
