More sweetness, there's a Visual Studio add-in, and we get Ray Ozzie :)


Microsoft said it will incorporate Groove's "virtual office" collaboration software into its Office line of desktop productivity applications. Ozzie, the inventor of Lotus Notes and a collaboration guru, will report to Bill Gates, Microsoft's chairman and chief software architect.

Microsoft was an investor in Groove, which has closely tied its collaboration software to Windows and other Microsoft products.

"After working with Ray for years as a close partner, it will be great to have him on our senior leadership team," Gates said in a statement.
