Myerson leaves after 21 years, and nearly three years in what some have called the hardest job at Microsoft - trying to build a device business after the company exited the phone handset business, while charting the future of Windows in a world that is moving away from the client-computing model that it led.

Telemetry data from Microsoft shows that 48% of Windows 10 PCs are still running it, while only 39% are running on Windows 7.

Developers will be able to make the app public whenever they choose and can even set a timer that would transition it to public automatically at a certain point, the post said. Myerson spent decades at Microsoft building the Windows team and reviving the Windows Mobile Division.

Clearly, Microsoft has a few teething problems to iron out of the known users groups facility, but at least its making moves to appease developers keen to work within the Windows ecosystem.

"There is no working build of Windows 10 that I can now get working with Nvidia cards and my G-Sync monitor", writes one frustrated gamer.

Microsoft on Thursday announced a major reorganization, putting the focus on two divisions. Panos Panay becomes chief product officer and devices leader. Our tipster says they and others who have installed the latest versions of Windows and Nvidia drivers continue to see the performance of their games lagging behind what they had before those updates. "Products like Amazon's Echo are now the go-to for the future and the Alexa digital assistant is moving through the market encompassing everything from TVs to cars", he said. It will be led by Scott Guthrie, the current executive vice president for the Cloud and Enterprise Group. It will be responsible the development of Azure and the company's rapidly growing portfolio of artificial intelligence tools, a good portion of which are hosted on the cloud platform. "Some of the AI groups were rolled into product groups indicating to me that AI is becoming more real and is a broader part of products, and not just research".

Back in 2015, Nadella reorganized to combine Windows software together with all of the company's various hardware efforts, at the time including Surface computers, HoloLens VR gear, Lumia smartphones, the Surface Hub table display, the Band fitness tracker and the Xbox gaming system.

Myerson's departure could mean a new road for Microsoft, where the company focuses on leveraging Google's Android platforms to simply get more users onto its services.
