Steven Sinofsky, the amazingly competent dude at the helm of Windows 7 software development, has just been named president of the whole Windows division. He basically assumes the managerial duties of Bill Veghte, who was overseeing the business side.
Having met Sinofsky on a number of occasions, I can say that it makes total sense. He's sharp, and now that he doesn't need to focus all his managerial efforts on meeting development deadlines, it's time to put the rest of his brain to use in getting the product into distribution. My sense is, given the man's focus and drive, he was probably already making most of the key logistical decisions already.
