OzzieSoft?

Wonder if the term "OzzieSoft" -- a k a, the world of Microsoft, according to Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie -- is going to take off?

A couple of Microsoft bloggers, Steve Clayton and James Senior, have dropped OzzieSoft mentions into recent posts. Both attribute Microsoft's seeming desire to be more "Steve-Jobs-like" in not announcing products until they are ready to ship to Ozzie. (As Windows-Now.com blogger Robert McLaws notes, that policy can backfire if core developers and consituents aren't allowed to have input into the product-evolution process.)

If Ozzie does decide to take up the Jobs mantle, I am praying he won't go the black turtleneck route. And I'm hoping someone as clever as "Fake Steve" ends up penning the "Fake Ray" blog.
