Welcome to episode 260 of Observed Tech.
This week we focus on the big news that recently came out of Redmond – the massive reorganization at Microsoft which includes the departure of Windows CVP Terry Myerson and the splitting up of the Windows team across two engineering groups.
This change, which places Windows at least two leadership layers below the CEO, is significant as the role of Windows at Microsoft continues to change. No longer is Windows the bread and butter of the software giant – now it is all about the cloud, artificial intelligence, and edge computing.
Prior to diving into my take and summary of this realignment, I catch everyone up on the latest when it comes to Redstone 4, Redstone 5, and what we should be expecting next as this upcoming feature update gets ready for general availability.
Normally I would have several other headlines in an episode of the show but since this is focused on the reorganization the only outside item on the agenda is about the new DNS service from Cloudflare and APNIC. The service, which was announced on April Fool’s Day but wasn’t a joke, promises faster DNS translation and privacy around your DNS lookups/browsing. I already have it setup across my home network and so far it is proving to be quite fast and improving my overall browsing experience.
Lastly, my apologies for the interruptions due to my allergy related cough a few times in this episode. I am really hoping this sorts itself out in the next few days.
I appreciate your patience and as always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
