Microsoft Shuffles Leadership

Steve Lohr, reporting for The New York Times:

Microsoft reshuffled its management team yesterday in an effort to make it more nimble as the company tries to lift its growth and compete with fast-moving rivals like Google.

Under the plan, seven business units will be collapsed into three divisions, each led by an executive who will carry the title of president.

Things have not been going well for Microsoft the last few years, but this is a sign that Gates and Ballmer recognize that. Gates is crazy-ass smart.
