NWC Interview: Mark Russinovich, Microsoft

Mark Russinovich, Microsoft

In the years you ran Winternals, what was your relationship with Microsoft?

My relationship with Microsoft began about 10 years ago. I published tools that exposed bugs in Windows and consequently had many discussions with the Windows team on how to fix them. The tools were developed completely independently of Microsoft. Up until a few weeks ago, I never had access to Windows source code.

In the late 1990s, I worked actively on building a good relationship with Microsoft and was given a great deal of access to the Windows team when I co-authored the Microsoft Press book on Windows internals.

What do you hope to achieve at Microsoft?
