Jim Allchin: ‘Setting the Record Straight’

Jim Allchin, who, it’s worth pointing out, was in charge of Windows Vista’s development:

As part of one of Microsoft’s on-going lawsuits, a piece of email that I sent to Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates recently became public. It was a rant encouraging a change to the way we were building Windows at the time. In the email, I made a comment for effect about buying a Mac if I was not working at Microsoft. Taken out of context, this comment could be confusing.

Where by “confusing” he means “embarrassing”.
