Microsoft used dogfooding during their Windows NT project. Novell, HP and Apple have also used similar tactics during product development with positive results.

…proactive role in the projects I'm part of. Also, Miguel is a big-shot at Novell, but I'll let him comment on how his company is supporting the projects. =)

The reality of open-source software is that corporate sponsorship and funding comes and goes.

SVP of Products. Roger, who managed the SUSE Linux business at Novell, certainly has the open source experience and credentials to continue to reinforce Engine Yard's commitment to open source.

Finally, we've also added Sara Gardner as VP of Marketing and Steve Gross as VP of Business Development. There are so many things to inform the community about, and so many great companies to partner with, that Sara and Steve are already busy! I welcome them to Engine Yard…

Greg Kroah-Hartman: Sure. I'm a Novell fellow, and I'm working on the Linux kernel with the SUSE Labs division at Novell.

I've been doing Linux kernel work for more than 10 years now. I'm a maintainer of several different subsystems, including USB, the driver core, and some other minor things. I'm also responsible for releasing the stable Linux kernels. I used to be a maintainer of a lot of other driver subsystems and such over the years, but I've …

…20 years, we had SNA from IBM, IPX from Novell, NetBIOS from Microsoft, and a dozen other competing network protocols.
