EXIT light is well lit at Microsoft!

Wow, lots of executive departures at Microsoft. Pretty soon I'll know no one:
  • Rob Short, corporate vice president on the Windows Core Technology team
  • Bruce Jaffe, the company's acquisitions chief
  • Charles Fitzgerald, general manager of platform strategy
  • Jeff Raikes, president of the Microsoft Business Division

There has certainly been a groundswell at Microsoft to bring in new, fresh, young talent. That's been going on for some time now in the lower-mid level ranks. With BillG going I wonder if this is now starting at the top. I worked a bit with Rob and Charles while I was at MS - both very sharp and talented guys.

Well, sometimes change is good!
