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.

Why hate? There is gray between black and white. Like those that will buy a Surface but prefer win32 compatibility and hence buy Surface x86 rather then Surface RT.

That's the whole deal. Microsoft offers you two near identicial (price, feel, look, name) products. The one runs all those Windows applications out there and allows non-app-market installations, the other not. Why would you buy the later one?
