Old-Line Microsoft Exec Muglia to Step Down

Bob Muglia had a good run at Microsoft, but after 23 years with the software giant, the president of the Servers and Tools Business (STB) is on his way out.

In a memo to Microsoft employees, CEO Steve Ballmer made it clear that Muglia's departure signals a shift in the direction the company intends to pursue.

"I have decided that now is the time to put new leadership in place for STB. This is simply recognition that all businesses go through cycles and need new and different talent to manage through those cycles," Ballmer wrote in his email to the troops.
