Big changes at top of Microsoft

Microsoft said today that Bill Gates is stepping out of his role as chief software architect to spend more time with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, beginning a two-year transition plan.

Ray Ozzie will become chief software architect immediately.

“The change we’re announcing today is not a retirement,” Gates said. “It’s a reordering of my priorities.”

Gates also praised Steve Ballmer’s performance as chief executive.

This transition looks like something I talked about in the first column I wrote back in April
