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.

If Sinofsky was being canned for Metro or Windows 8 or Surface, they wouldn't put the person in charge of the User Experience at the helm of Windows.

She's just a temporary replacement.

Sinofsky is a douchebag who had a ridiculously stupid plan of forcing Metro to the point of even taking away the registry hack. I still can't believe he talked Ballmer into it.

Ballmer likely looked at some early install or sales data and decided to get rid of the Steve Jobs wannabe.

Goodbye douchebag.
