Meet Steven Sinofsky. He does Windows.
Business 2.0: The man who could fix Windows
Steven Sinofsky is a rare bird on Microsoft’s Redmond campus — a manager who actually delivers software on time. As head of product development for Office, he’s known for meeting release deadlines.
He’s now been put in charge of Microsoft’s Windows group, which has seen endless delays in the release of its new Vista operating system. (Indeed, the recently announced delay of the consumer version of Vista will hold up what would have been the timely release of Sinofsky’s Office 2007 since Microsoft wants to release the two products at the same time).
