Top Microsofties get stock awards

Ten senior Microsoft executives received stock awards last week, which were reported in filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday. The awards “were the result of the performance review of our executive officers for their fiscal year 2008 equity compensation,” according to a spokesman. They vest 25 percent at a time on Aug. 31, 2008, and each Aug. 31 thereafter.
