+ - Key Vista Executive Exits To Amazon

Submitted by Odin_Tiger
Odin_Tiger (585113) writes "Seattle Times reports:
"Brian Valentine, a Microsoft veteran known for rallying the troops to finish big projects, is due to start work at Amazon as a senior vice president in mid-September. Valentine, who was senior vice president of the Windows Core Operating System Division, decided to leave now that the company has shipped Release Candidate 1 (RC1), a near-final version of Windows Vista, according to an e-mail from Microsoft's public relations agency."
In light of RC1's poor reception, is this really a parting of ways at the end of a job well done, or is he bailing?"

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.

Working...
