Microsoft to buy Groove Networks

I’ve just seen this interesting article on cnet about Microsoft and Groove Networks.  This should be interesting for the future of our collaboration software…

The acquisition will add Groove’s products to the lineup of Microsoft Office System products, servers and services, as well as bring the development talent and technology leadership of top Groove executives to Microsoft. Groove founder Ray Ozzie, the creator of IBM’s Lotus Notes, will become Chief Technical Officer of Microsoft, reporting to Microsoft Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates.
