What time is it? Shock o’clock. Microsoft has just put out a press release to announce that the head of Windows, Steven Sinofsky, has decided to leave the company. Sinsofsky was seen a lot recently at the launch of Windows 8 and Microsoft Surface. Sinofsky had the following to say:
“It is impossible to count the blessings I have received over my years at Microsoft. I am humbled by the professionalism and generosity of everyone I have had the good fortune to work with at this awesome company.”
Sinofsky was responsible for taking over the reigns of Windows after a rocky launch with Vista. He has since helped make Windows 7 the most successful version of Windows, and kept a strong record of shipping products on time. Julie Larson-Gree and CFO Tami Reiler will take over his duties.
