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 never said you can't get work done with it. You can get work done but Windows 8 hampers your productivity and metro disrupts your focus.

Windows 8 is not about boosting productivity, it's about boosting Microsoft's position in the mobile/tablet market. Sinofsky never denied this and avoided specific questions about productivity.

Call me irrational all you want but I called out Sinofsky as a problem early on and now he is gone. I also said to short MSFT before the Windows 8 release and anyone who took my advice made a profit.

Irrational? I don't think so. What you need to do is take off your shill goggles and realize that MS is needlessly pissing off a lot of their existing customer base with this crap. Sinofsky's plan of forcing a tablet interface on mouse/keyboard users is one of the worst ideas in tech history.


I am an existing customer and this simply isn't true.
