Microsoft is making some major changes to the way its Windows organization operates this week, meaning it will refocus on the operating system that has made it famous.The software giant, which earlier this year put surface chief Panos panet in charge of windows, is now reshuffling some members of the team.
Currently, Microsoft is moving part of Windows development back under Panos-Panet control. Specifically, this means that the Windows infrastructure and developer experience team has returned to what we traditionally call the Windows team, representing Microsoft's admission that the big break-up of the Windows. We have seen a lot of evidence, Windows 10 development experience confusion, Windows update delays, lack of major new features, and many recent Windows update issues.
Thurrott.com obtained an internal memo from Panos-Panai detailing the changes. While some of parts of the Windows, especially the engineering ones, will remain in the Azure sector, Microsoft's restructuring focuses on cleaning up Windows, for reliable shipments and updates. These changes also align Microsoft's Project Reunion application work with the Windows team, making win32 and UWP applications closer.
The Microsoft Windows team led by Panos panet will still work closely with the Windows core project under the leadership of azure, but the reorganization should make Microsoft more consistent and pay more attention to windows, which has proved the importance of the operating system. As workers and students around the world switch to laptops and PCs to work from home, the use of windows has soared. As enterprises adapt to the new reality, PC shipment is also surging. Microsoft recognized the change earlier this year and shifted its windows 10x operating system to focus on laptops rather than dual screen devices.
Microsoft has been working on these design changes for years, learning from past mistakes. As Panos parnet takes more responsibility for windows, we hope to see Microsoft's fluent design more consistent throughout the operating system, and Microsoft's monthly and annual windows updates are more reliable.
