Those “magnificent” softies in their flying machines

Brave soles fly a Microsoft glider? Best of British...

A lighter piece of news will make way for quite a few pieces of interest in the next few days.

Before we get into those more important articles, lets first give an OpenBytes award.

OpenBytes would officially like to recognize a few Microsofties as having nerves of steel.  Why? Because some  intrepid chaps from the company that brought you RROD and BSOD, dare to attempt flight in a Microsoft Glider for the Flug Tag Competition.

After your experiences of Microsoft tech, would you want to take to the skies with Microsoft? 😉

I’m sure if things go wrong, the issues of the glider will be fixed come “Patch Tuesday”.

This has also been reported by Ed Bott and his article can be read here on ZDnet.

In true “refuse to loose” Microsoft fashion (in my view), Ed Bott reports:

While many Flugtag (“flight day” in German) entries are decidedly low-tech, the Microsoft engineers took this project (somewhat) seriously.

I suppose now we can look forward to seeing how well they do.  Don’t worry though as I am sure whatever happens Microsoft will have “It will be better next time” on standby.

You can see this “project’s” page over here.
