Microsoft Big and surprising news this morning. Some considered him the crown prince of the Microsoft empire, slated to take over after Ballmer's eventual departure, but this morning, Steven Sinofsky announced his resignation from Microsoft. His role will be taken over by Julie-Larson Green. Persistent sources indicate that we're looking at a Forstall-esque situation; Sinofsky was, supposedly, not a good team player.

Julie only "invented" the Tiles, not Metro. Also she was only lsst years at Sinofsky's side like many msny others. She's a designer, did not lead anything so far and now gets to command the central Windows devision.


Indeed...

This is very different than...

"Be that sales (which 75% of retailers say is on track, and 25% say is above expectations) or it as a whole."
