Whitehurst And Nadella On The Red Hat-Microsoft Collaboration

Whitehurst after Nadella walks onto the Summit keynote-sessions stage: Would not have expected to see that, to be honest with you. It's been a long time.

Nadella: Everything has a time.

Whitehurst, later in the talk: To be blunt, five years ago we had, I guess to be polite, it would be called an adversarial relationship. It's just amazing to see how much progress we've had together. And I think that's on both sides a real desire to serve our customers, and we found such great ways to work together. Any thoughts on how we think about this partnership in the future?

Nadella: We are very, very committed to the partnership because it's driven by what I believe is fundamentally what our customers expect of us. They expect of us to…really interoperate, be committed to open source. In our case, it's not just the partnership with Red Hat, but the fundamental is the actions, the deeds of what are we doing in terms of contributing to Linux, what are we contributing to Hadoop, what are we contributing to Kubernetes, how are we bringing .NET to open source or (Visual Studio) Code, or how are we continuing to be great stewards of GitHub. I think that's really what we're very committed to. But in the context of what we've gotten started, I would love to see the feedback. Even today, one of the most encouraging things for me is I got sort of this list of features that they want and are pushing us. I think that's what's really going to be at the core of what is going to be our strategy and our commitment to this partnership.
