Interview with Julie Larson-Green, the Executive in Charge of Windows 8 at Microsoft

Filling Sinofsky’s shoes at such a crucial time for Microsoft is no small task, Larson-Green is tasked with that job. 

“It was a way to test our hypothesis of a new way of working. It takes time for individuals to adjust, but it also takes time for the industry to adjust to new things—all the complicated things about the supply chain and issues like what sizes of glass gets cut. Surface is our vision of what a stage for Windows 8 should look like, to help show consumers and the industry our point of view on what near perfect hardware would look like. We believe in Surface as a long-term product, but we know that partners will have other innovations and ideas.”
