Windows 8 boss exits Microsoft
November 13, 2012 | By Kris Graft




Newsbrief: Now that Microsoft's Surface tablet and Windows 8 are out the door, so is the man who spearheaded development of both products.

Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows Division, has left Microsoft after 23 years with the company, AllThingsD confirmed. The official company line from CEO Steve Ballmer is that Sinofsky "decided to leave the company," though AllThingsD reported tension between Sinofsky and other execs that may have contributed to his departure.

Windows 8 and Surface have become significant points of interest and debate in the game development community, as Microsoft attempts to navigate a market that's seeing slowing PC sales and growing mobile hardware adoption. Both Surface and Windows 8 shipped in late October.
