A couple of articles this weekend on the changes last week at Microsoft...

"As Gates announced his plans Thursday to begin the process that will see him eventually cease full-time work at Microsoft, he also announced that he was dividing much of his technical leadership responsibility among the two software veterans, both of whom have been serving as chief technical officers.

"Craig Mundie, a longtime Microsoft veteran, will now handle the company's research units and will serve as Microsoft's external voice on technology."

The Seattle Times' article on "A conversation with Bill Gates: Reflecting on where he's been, where he's going"

CNET News' on how "Ozzie, Mundie pick up tech mantle at Microsoft."

And this one from the Seattle Times on "driving the Windows Live initiative."
