Microsoft loses big name Linux developer

News from ZDNet is Daniel Robbins has left Microsoft after only 8 months. Robbins felt he was not able to work to his full potential, so he left.

“I didn’t make the decision to leave Microsoft due to concerns about the company as a whole — Microsoft has just had a string of very successful product launches and I anticipate that it will continue to enjoy great success,” he said.

“The reason I decided to leave had to do with my specific experiences working in Microsoft’s Linux Lab. Although I believe that the concept behind Microsoft’s Linux Lab is a good one, I wasn’t able to work at my full level of technical ability and I found this frustrating,” he said.
