Zuckerberg showers Redmond with praise
Would have joined Microsoft
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claims he would have gladly joined Microsoft had Facebook gone tits up.
Speaking at the Startup School conference, Zuckerberg told the crowd he would have probably taken an engineering job at Microsoft had Facebook failed.
“I always had a lot of respect for Microsoft,” he said. “A lot of people from Harvard went to work there.”
Zuckerberg went on to explain how Facebook came to be and how he eventually dropped out of school.
However we’re not entirely convinced he would have ended up at Microsoft if he stayed at school and didn't launch Facebook. He would probably be working for the Winklevoss twins right now.
