Microsoft's Scott Guthrie takes over Satya Nadella's previous role

He has been appointed as acting lead of cloud and enterprise, Microsoft said

Microsoft technologist Scott Guthrie has been appointed to lead the company's cloud and enterprise group, after the promotion of the former head, Satya Nadella, to the position of CEO of the company.

Guthrie's new role is as "acting lead of Cloud and enterprise," Microsoft said, suggesting that the appointment may be temporary.

On Tuesday, Microsoft announced that Nadella had been appointed as the company's third CEO. He was previously executive vice president of the cloud and enterprise group.

Guthrie, a popular figure at developer events, has been a corporate vice president in Microsoft's server and tools business, according to his blog. He ran a development team that worked on products and technologies such as Windows Azure, BizTalk and Visual Studio Tools for Web, Web Services and Workflow. A frequent blogger, he lives in Seattle.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
