  • Panos Panay gets more of the Windows pie

    Report just in from Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet:

    Microsoft is moving part of the Core OS and Intelligent Edge (COSINE) team under Panay in order to create more of an end-to-end servicing and shipping experience… Some parts of COSINE engineering, specifically around the Windows core, are staying with Executive Vice President of Azure Jason Zander.

    Microsoft has long separated Windows “core” and Windows “what the customer sees” efforts into separate teams. Now, it seems, Panay is absorbing all but the base plumbing of the kitchen sink.

    I keep hoping that these restructurings will help Microsoft stabilize Windows 10.
