Well i doubt that very much as she was a developer/tester for certain game development and not for xbox 360 OS development or hardware decison making.

It is just sad when things like this happen and it appears her extranged hubby who also worked for microsoft and also at another place recently was to obsessed with her and their life together that he figured he would make sure they departed this world together, cause he could not get over the fact she stood up to him finally and gave him the boot.

Well i suppose there is at least 1 opening for a job at Microsoft if anyone is looking for such a career as she had. To bad the next person who takes it over has to do so cause of such a terrible loss of life was taken to get such a job now.
