Microsoft fixes GAIM GNU/Linux MSN Client

Well, pigs do fly.
What does a Microsoft employee have to do to get MSN Messenger working on their Linux desktops? Fix the bugs in GAIM Messenger of course! Thats what Bill Hilf, Microsoft’s Linux Lab Manager, did when he and his team had a ‘real’ need for MSN via HTTP under Linux. And, because they at Microsoft are so cool, even submitted the patch upstream.

Whats next? Microsoft at the LinuxWorld expo? Done already.

Could this mean we will soon see a “Microsoft Linux” in a laptop near you?
