Steven Sinofsky ousted from Microsoft

November 13, 2012

Steve Ballmer on Steven Sinofsky departure:

“Effective immediately, Julie Larson-Green will lead Windows engineering. She will be responsible for all product development for Windows and Windows Live, in addition to Surface.”

You know something went very bad when “effective immediately” comes out, as Ina Fried reported about the sudden decision:

“Sources have said the move came amid growing tension between Sinofsky and other top executives. Sinofsky, though seen as highly talented, was viewed at the top levels as not the kind of team player that the company was looking for.”

Even how Apple shuffles their management team is being copied by Microsoft.
