Microsoft rearranges Windows Vista executives

Posted by David Hunter at 8:30 PM ET.

Elizabeth Montalbano has all the details at InfoWorld, and here’s the big news:

Brian Valentine, senior vice president of the Windows Core Operating System Division (COSD), will transition to a new role in the company once Vista is complete.

Also effective now, Jon DeVaan has joined the Platforms and Services Division as senior vice president of engineering, sharing co-leadership of the COSD with Valentine. DeVaan will drive Windows OS development and cross-platform integration, as well as work on products and services that will follow Windows Vista once Valentine leaves the division.

Also “Dave Cutler, a senior technical fellow, and Amitabh Srivastava, corporate vice president of COSD” will leave after Vista ships to work for Ray Ozzie and Ozzie also “will take over direction” of Live Labs.

Update: Mary Jo Foley has more at Microsoft Watch.
