Ray Ozzie may be leaving Microsoft, but he also hopes to leave a mark. When he joined five years ago, he took a cue from Bill Gates and penned a company-shifting memo. Where Gates bet the company's future on the Internet, Ozzie took it a step further and pushed Redmond up to the cloud.
In what will probably be his parting shot, Ozzie argues that the move to the cloud may fundamentally change the very devices we use.
He equivocates a bit, providing his post-PC vision -- "if it (the death of the PC) were ever to occur." Ozzie sees us using multiple devices to access a common set of functions and a common set of data, and these may or may not include a fat PC, laptop or netbook.
Ozzie claims Microsoft is obsessed with protecting our data and privacy in the cloud.
