Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie Leaving Microsoft

Posted by David Hunter at 2:54 PM ET.

Steve Ballmer has announced that Microsoft Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie is leaving and that his post will not be filled.

With our progress in services and the cloud now full speed ahead in all aspects of our business, Ray and I are announcing today Ray’s intention to step down from his role as chief software architect. He will remain with the company as he transitions the teams and ongoing strategic projects within his organization – bringing the great innovations and great innovators he’s assembled into the groups driving our business.

Woody Leonhard at Infoworld says "Ray Ozzie’s leaving Microsoft: What took him so long?" and Joe Wilcox opines that the problem was that Ozzie really wasn’t one of Steve Ballmer’s boys. Take the money and run, Ray – there are lots of places where you can do interesting technical work.
