Microsoft’s Gianugo Rabellino: “We Are More Open than You Might Think”
Microsoft is more open to open source than ever, and only plans to step up its efforts. This is the message I received from a recent conversation with Gianugo Rabellino, Sr. Director - Open Source Communities at Microsoft.

I wrote an article about Rabellino joining Microsoft in January 2011, and I jumped at the chance to do an interview with him, and deliver additional insight into the role of the new go-to guy for open-source communities at the Redmond company.

Those familiar with the software giant’s evolution in recent years know that Microsoft is putting code where its mouth is, so to speak, and web properties such as Interoperability Bridges make this perfectly clear.

But there are additional resources devoted to interoperability and Microsoft’s efforts when it comes down to open source, and I encourage you to check out Interoperability @ Microsoft, Port25 (here you can see some the amazing work that Peter Galli is doing), and last, but not least, Microsoft Open Source.

Below you will find Rabellino’s answers to my questions, but you can also contact him directly via his blog or Twitter account.

Come on guys....try a little bit of innovation instead of trying to under cut the only makes you look desperate.
