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 .NET framework isn't there which is what really matters.

Corps can't port over their internal .NET applications. Sinofsky has been anti-.NET and thank God he is gone.

The .NET framework is there. You haven't done a day of development for Windows 8.

For someone who regularly mentions his .NET experience, you sure do know very little.
