Written by: Sam Varghese | Published in: Open SauceThe departure of Steven Sinofsky from Microsoft sends the wrong message to the market, given that he was the man in charge of Windows 8.
Now that Steven Sinofsky has left Microsoft as President of the Windows division, the question now comes down to what happened and the implications his departure means for the company.
Microsoft issue a statement today that Sinofsky and CEO Steve Ballmer mutually agreed to the departure. My bet: Sinofsky does not fit with the company in the aftermath of the Windows 8 launch.
At LeWeb Paris this morning, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for its Developer & Platform Evangelism Group, just took the stage to discuss the state of the Windows 8 developer ecosystem and Microsoft in general with Techonomy Media‘s Founder & CEO David Kirkpatrick.
