Breaking: Windows Head Steven Sinofsky to Leave Microsoft

If this is true, it’s huge news – Sinofsky departing so shortly after the debut of a critical Windows 8 and Surface might indicate long-term irreparable disagreements from within. I had the brilliant and miracle-working Sinofsky pegged as the next CEO.

“Officially, Microsoft is saying that the move was a mutual decision by Sinofsky and the company. Microsoft is dividing Windows oversight among two top Sinofsky deputies. Julie Larson-Green will head up the engineering side of Windows, while Tami Reller, who has had headed marketing and served as the unit’s CFO, will have responsibility for the business side of things. Both will report to CEO Steve Ballmer.”

“Sinfosky, who took the reins of Windows after a long career in the Office unit. helped restore order and discipline to the operating system following the boondoggle of Windows Vista. However, he was a divisive figure both inside and outside of the Windows group.”
