Ex-Mozilla security boss Window Snyder has joined Apple. Snyder, who worked at Mozilla between 2006 and 2008, and is credited with making Firefox's security response more professional, joins Apple after a spell in consulting. Prior to joining Mozilla, Snyder worked at Microsoft where she acted as security lead on Microsoft …
Where do these people get their names?
Honestly, there's one thing having a foreign name, but I seriously doubt there is any country on the planet where Window would be classed as normal.
Well apart from in America.
I used to have a guy called Bacon (he was from Zimbabwe) work for me. So Window ain't unique in being weird.
There are quite some
Odd Persons in Norway for that matter (actual name, no joke)
And that surname?
The surname means "cutter" in Dutch (from where it comes), so it's "Window(s) cutter" actually factually.
So you mean she has a secret identity?
I hope there won't be any snyde comments
about opening windows into Apple security
She tried to join Microsoft but they saw straight through her.
I get the pun!
But, if you read the article, she worked for M$ before she joined Mozilla.
For this earth-shattering news. This will definately change the it-world as we know it.
Let me tell you another horrific story: heard through the grapevine that Steve Ballmer has an Apple tree in his garden!!
sshhtt.. don't tell anyone, the it-world will never recover.
...he also has a Gnome under that fruit tree. I've personally heard him singing opera to the gecko that lives in the apple tree whilst wearing his favourite red hat and walking his yellow dog around the chrome sandbox.

Is this a a story just because of her name?
This is the reg
They do stories on much much less :D
Just thank god its not a slow news day.
RE: Is this a a story just because of her name?
Erm, no. It's a story because she's worked for MS and Mozilla before this, and because she's supposed to be good at her job -- oh, and she's relatively famous as IT people go.

Perhaps the "Conception" Theory of Naming?
