I feel so sorry for Microsoft that they can't pay people what it takes to fill those vacant jobs. Maybe if they didn't throw away $2.5 billion on Minecraft...but aren't they sitting on a ton of cash?

Wrong. There are plenty of qualified software engineers looking for jobs right now.

M$ just wants cheap labor.
