New Windows Boss

As a Microsoft vet, Steve Sinofsky is no stranger to pressure. But he better have his Alka-Seltzer ready as Sinofsky has just taken over as president of the Windows Division.

Sinofsky is already off to a good start. The man helped run Windows engineering and has been given credit for producing Windows 7, an OS that while not yet released, is stable enough to let me write this newsletter! Thanks, Steve.
