  • Microsoft's Tool for Running Linux on Windows 10 is now Open Source

Last week, Microsoft introduced Cortana Show Me, a preview app created to show you around Windows 10 settings. The company managed to turn its individual on-premises Office products into a cloud bundle with Office 365 - which is growing even faster than Microsoft itself expected.

As part of the reorganization, Jason Zander becomes executive VP of Azure with the Windows platform team joining him. Nadella said that Rajesh Jha, the company's executive vice president for its Product group, will take charge of the new Experiences and Devices division.

Terry Myerson - executive vice president for the Windows and Devices group who joined Microsoft 21 years ago - is leaving the firm, according to the statement. Last year, Microsoft laid the groundwork created to make Windows part of a recurring subscription business via Microsoft 365, which is a bundle of Windows 10, Office 365, and elements of the Enterprise Security + Mobility service. He will work with me on the transition over the coming months.

North, South Korean leaders to meet in historic…
On Wednesday, Mr Trump welcomed news of progress following the talks between the Chinese and North Korean leaders in Beijing. Earlier this month, the two countries agreed to hold a summit on the southern side of the border village.

That move, said Patrick Moorhead, an independent analyst, is Microsoft's effort to show it is "serious about the broader implications of A.I." at a time of rising concern about the technology's influence on people's behavior and as a threat to jobs.

Microsoft is hoping it can do with Windows what it did with Office. The first group is developing the core technologies used by Microsoft's Mixed Reality device group and Azure customers working on augmented reality or virtual reality, while the second focuses on AI-driven cloud services that are made available to Azure customers.

The shakeup brings with it many questions, about Microsoft's future and what impact this will have on Windows and its other service. Panos Panay will serve as the Microsoft's Chief Product Officer, leading first party devices with a focus on enterprise applications and usage.

Windows: Joe Belfiore will continue leading our Windows experiences and will drive Windows innovation in partnership with the PC and device ecosystem.

New Experiences and Technology: Kudo Tsunoda will continue to lead this team to define how we engage users with high-value experiences to help them achieve more.

Nadella's explanation for what he put under Guthrie was laden with industry jargon, but the point is to allow Microsoft to offer its apps and services via the cloud to everything from mobile phones to corporate servers. He led the Microsoft Exchange software team for eight years, until 2008. Kipman and team will work closely with Harry Shum on all things AI related.
