Steven Sinofsky and Microsoft are no longer "sitting in a tree, kay eye ess ess eye en gee". The head of Windows is leaving immediately and his position is being filled by two other Microsoft-ies, Tami Reller and Julie Larson-Greer. The split is reportedly a mutual one, and lest you think this is some kind of punishment for Windows 8, Larson-Greer is thought to be a force behind the Modern Style (nee Metro) interface. Maybe with a couple of smart women taking over the marketing and development of Windows we may see something good actually come of all this?
