Winternals Software, the company co-founded by rootkit 'private eye' Mark Russinovich, was yesterday aquired by Microsoft...Terms of the acquisition, which was announced yesterday, were not disclosed...

Good move if they allow Russinovich to do what he does best.

I'd seen something on his website a while back that said Mark Russinovich himself was on his way to Microsoft. It sounded as though he was going to work for them. You can read about it here on his blog.
