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.

I think what he's done is nothing short of remarkable: shipped two versions of windows nearly on time and relatively bug free. Compare/contrast that with the previous windows releases: Win Vista and Win XP. To do that, I'm quite sure he made some enemies who are now free to publicly air their dirty laundry.

It will be interesting to see if MS goes back to its earlier ways without him at the helm.
