Pakastani Girl Gets Windows

In a bit of good pr for Microsoft, Misbehaving and Popgadget both point to this Seattle Post-Intelligencer article on Arfa Karim Randhawa, a 10-year-old girl from Pakistan and the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional in the world.

Arfa, who has created basic Windows applications, such as a calculator and a sorting program, primarily in the C# programming language, received the certification when she was still 9, an impressive accomplishment in its own right, according to older programmers who have gone through the process.
Afra and her father were treated to a VIP tour in Redmond, including a meeting with Bill Gates. Previously unaware of the casual dress code at Microsoft, she said she had expected Gates to be wearing a suit but was surprised to find him in a casual shirt with the top button open.
“I expected that all the people would be here in suits,” she said with a giggle, wearing a hat acquired during her earlier visit to the company’s Xbox game studios.
