Ballmer makes first public statement about Sinofsky's exit
You know, obviously, one of the things that's been on the news recently is that transitions in leadership.
And obviously, the most interesting question for Sinofsky's departure is, what does the future of the organization look like?
Kinda where you're going, has the strategy changed, is this-- What is the signal for where you're going?
Well, I'm really excited about, you know, both the work we've done, and frankly, the spectacular start that we got
off to with Windows 8. And from a strategy perspective-- with all the caveats that says we're always innovating in the next release, but from a strategy perspective, we're kind of all in on what we've done, building on this notion of an integrated experience, a new user interface that's alive and active, a product that's got the best of work and play, tablet and PC coming together, Touch and keyboard.
We love what we've done, and I think we're off
to a very, very good start, we got a very good team, and you know, Steven as much as he wants to do in his life, and he's made one of the most amazing contributions anybody will ever make to any company in terms of guiding a lot of our key activities and doing sort of great work on our engineering systems.
And so, wish him well and he's always recommended if you're gonna make a change, you make an out-of-product boundary,
and he's living his principles, so to speak, and certainly, we wish him well.
Our new team is fantastic, maybe a little less well-known, but the lady is taking over the product development functions, been with us 20 years, his work done, Internet Explorer and Office and Windows, and he's been a driver behind the vision and you know, we'll continue down the path.
