Jim Allchin’s been getting a lot of ink, in our paper and elsewhere.
On our business cover today, we ran a sample of the online Vista Q&A he did with Times readers last Thursday.
I was going to write a short introduction, but it ended up more like a sayonara piece. It was based on a conversation about the server business we had when I walked with Jim from our newsroom out to his Lexus.
CNet’s Ina Fried ran a similar story today that has a few great nuggets, including the Vista team pledge that nobody’s feature would “look like ass.”
There will probably be more Allchin farewell stories, and some coverage if and when he decides to work somewhere else, but most of the attention is now on the Vista and the people still in Redmond. Ben Romano’s filing some great blog entries from the New York launch, by the way.
