Microsoft throws more talent at Vista

By Justin Mann on
In light of the problems plaguing the impending release of Windows Vista, Microsoft is planning to have a change in management for Vista and Windows in general. Steve Sinofsky, who currently operates primarily with Office, will be moved to Windows development.

Sinofsky, who joined Microsoft in 1989 and who has a track record of shipping product updates on time, is a trusted lieutenant of Chairman Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer, Gartenberg said. "Clearly things are not going super well with this project and it looks like it's time to bring a new sheriff to town," he said.
Sinofsky is responsible for a lot of Windows and Office development in the past, and Microsoft is no doubt looking to speed up development of the new OS to attempt to make good on the now-January deadline.
