Big reorg at Microsoft. 

And this is interesting: Dave Cutler, the father of NT (and arguably one of the greatest operating systems geniuses of all time) is now going off to work with Ray Ozzie on Live.  From Paul Thurrott:

David Cutler…will be reassigned outside of Windows to work directly with Microsoft Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie on “initiatives focused on Live products and services.” 

(This is the same Cutler who said to Gates “I won’t pollute it [NT] with crap!”.)

Crusty Dave Cutler, working with Ozzie, the hyperkinetic web services visionary?  Is this a marriage made in hell or is it something that will really get Cutler excited?
