Sinofsky is, or rather was because he’s leaving as of now, the guy behind Windows 8, Surface, and Halo 4.
Some say he’s leaving due to similar circumstances as Scott Forstall, meaning he was a d!ck. I’m not sure about that, but I do know that Windows 8 is a dud, Windows Phone 8 isn’t taking off at all, and Surface is just pathetic. Halo 4 is supposed to be awesome though.
Anyhow, say what you will about this guy, but he took bold moves. Moves that must have been sanctioned by the CEO…yeah, I know…so color me surprised that Sinofsky is leaving…
