Microsoft buys Winternals

Príspevok od užívateľa Panoramix0903 » Ut 18. Júl, 2006, 21:25

Microsoft on Tuesday said it has bought Winternals Software, a small maker of Windows utility programs, in a deal that the software maker hopes will add key technical talent to its operating system development team.

Terms of the deal to acquire the Austin, Texas-based company were not announced. Among the software that Winternals offers is a set of freely downloadable tools known as Sysinternals.

As part of the deal, the software maker is naming Winternals co-founder Mark Russinovich as a technical fellow.

"I've had my eye on Mark for some time," Jim Allchin, Microsoft divisional co-president, said in a statement. "The work he and Bryce (Cogswell, Winternal's other co-founder) have completed in system recovery and data protection illustrates the depth of thinking and skill they will bring to future versions of Windows. The addition of their deep kernel-level expertise to our existing strong talent will help provide us with the edge we need to continue to raise the quality and functionality bar for Windows on both the client and the server."

In buying Winternals, Microsoft is getting the company's free tools, its Sysinternals community Web site as well as several paid-for software products for businesses. However, it appears Microsoft made the deal, in large part, to hire the company's two co-founders.

"It's definitely about talent," Platform and Services division architect Jason Garms said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. "Mark is one of the top five or 10 people in the world when it comes to Windows internals."

Garms said that Russinovich will be focused on helping Microsoft further develop the Windows kernel in his role as technical fellow--the top technical position at Microsoft with less than two dozen people holding such title. Co-founder Cogswell will become a software architect in the Windows Component Platform Team.

Microsoft has seen its ability to quickly ready new versions of its flagship operating system wane in recent years. Windows Vista, the successor to Windows XP, will come more than five years after its predecessor, which launched in October 2001. Following several delays, Microsoft is currently hoping to wrap up development work on Vista this year in time for a January launch.

Russinovich said in a statement that he is excited to join the company whose technologies are so critical to so many businesses.

"I witness regularly the profound impact that even a few lines of code can have in a world of globally connected systems," Russinovich said.

Microsoft said it is still exploring how best to integrate Winternals' products. Winternals' Recovery Manager, for example, has some similarities to the System Center Data Protection Manager tool that Microsoft released in September 2005. "We're evaluating how those would meet together," Garms said.

As for the Sysinternals blog, the company wants to keep the community information, blogs, forums and tools, but Garms said Microsoft is looking at how the site might be integrated into other Microsoft efforts "so that it's not quite so separate."

No, uvidime. Ale ja som si ich radsej stiahol k sebe pre istotu... clovek nikdy nevie. Inak, ospravedlnujem sa, ze som ten clanok neprelozil, ale bol dlhy, a nemal som tolko casu, a po druhe som si uvedomil, ze ten, co nevie po anglicky obstojne, by aj tak nemal pouzivat ich produkty, uz len kvoli helpu alebo pripadnym errorovym hlaskam.

Pockat, mam v tom zmatok.

Winternals? Nemalo to byt Sysinternals? A nie je je nahodou Mark Russinovich zamestnancom Microsoftu? Viem ze je Microsoft Most Valuable Proffessional, a myslim ze take programy sa nedaju napisat bez dokladnej znalosti Windowsu, tak preto sa mi to zda divne.

Imho je to zas len nejaky hoax. Mohol by si uviest zdroj?

A este cosi. Na to, aby si mohol mat titul

Microsoft Most Valuable Proffessional

nepotrebujes byt zamestnancom Microsoftu.


Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs) are recognized, credible and accessible individuals with expertise in one or more Microsoft® products who actively participate in online and offline communities to share their knowledge and expertise with other Microsoft customers. Customers want an enriched pool of knowledge and real-life experience to tap for advice and feedback. MVPs are helping to satisfy this need by independently enabling customers in both online and offline technical communities. Customer feedback is vital to product development and R&D. The MVPs represent an important part of this feedback loop by providing another link for Microsoft to listen to the customer.

The Most Valuable Professional Program is the way that Microsoft formally acknowledges the accomplishments of these individuals for their contributions to community. It is focused on fostering a vibrant global community where Microsoft and customers learn about each other through valued ongoing relationships. The key strategies the program employs are:

* Recognize and engage with MVPs worldwide—Identify, enable and empower community influencers through a consistent quality customer relationship with Microsoft that spans product groups, services, and field organizations.
* Improve customer connection and satisfaction—Recognize more customers for their efforts and improve the quality of the experience on their turf and in their language.
* Drive program excellence—Professionalize services, customer offerings and worldwide roles and responsibilities to become more predictable and accountable to both internal and external Microsoft community customers.

The MVP Program, in existence for over eleven years, is represented by over 2,600 MVPs in 81 countries.
