Which division of Microsoft now develops .NET framework?

    I used to think that .NET is developed by a Developer Division but now it seems that it is part of the Server & Tools Division? Is that right? If so, what's left in DevDiv? (ScottGu also went to the Server&Tools division.)

    It appears that .NET falls under "Developer Tools" which is part of the S&T Division.

    Of course, if you look under "Operating Systems" on that page, the Windows 2008 variants are listed there. So who knows?

    @BorekB: AFAIK, DevDiv is part of the 'Tools' part of 'Server and Tools'

    CKurt is correct, Developer Division is a part of the Server and Tools business.  DevDiv makes Visual Studio among other stuff the team is responsible for.

    Has it always been like that or was DevDiv a separate division in the past? And is it correct that Soma used to be ScottGu's boss and now, it's the other way around?

    @BorekB: DevDiv is part of Server and Tools. The same team that has always made .NET makes .NET... All developer tools live in DevDiv (so, languages, compilers, runtimes, libraries, IDEs, debuggers, ALM tools, source code management tools (TFS), architecture tools, etc...)

    No, Soma does not work for Scott. Smiley Soma is the SVP of DevDiv and he reports to Satya, the president of S&T... Scott runs the Windows Azure dev platform group.
