Windows Head Quits Microsoft

Was he sleeping with his biographer too? Steven Sinofsky, head of Microsoft’s Windows Division, announced his departure from the company Monday, effective immediately. The move comes just two weeks after Sinofsky led the launch of Microsoft’s Windows 8 and the Surface tablet. He had been with the company since 1989.
