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.

The WP7 story repeats with RT and WP8. Microsoft seems to need to learn the hard way that there asset, the reason why Windows desktop sold so good all this years, is the 3th party win32 ecosystem that was build up over decades where they had zero serious competition. They depend on and are stuck on win32.
