If there’s one thing I do at rc3.org, it’s catalog the departure of big name Microsoft executives. Paul Maritz has announced his resignation, although he’ll remain as a “consultant.” The article lists the other Microsoft luminaries who’ve jumped ship recently at the end, in case you’ve lost track. Any guesses on who’s next? I’m thinking Jim Allchin. (I notice that back on January 14, I predicted Jim Allchin would be the next to go, so you shouldn’t put much stock in my predictions. Allchin is supposedly wrapping up a two month vacation right now.
