New Microsoft names new head of Windows business unit
The move comes two days after it announced some versions of Vista would be delayed

Could this mean that they will actually start trying to make deadlines?


Nah, couldn't be

New Yes, but not for a long time.
This guy is expected to concentrate on Blackomb, not Longhorn/Vista.

I expect there will be "significant" defections from the Windows development group since this guy's management style is quite different from what they have experienced in the past.

Since Microsoft's documentation is practically non-existant, if they lose enough programmers Blackomb will be another "from the ground up" project like Longhorn was supposed to be. Expect deadlines to not be met.

New Windows Wiener
They've changed the codename for the post Vista version of Windows to "Vienna".

Just sayin.
