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!
