The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft realigns Windows operation

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft realigns Windows operation "In his new role, Poole will have extensive oversight of a range of Microsoft operations, including development of Windows in desktops and laptops, the Windows eHome division and Microsoft's digital media player. He will report to Brian Valentine, senior vice president of the Windows division.
Microsoft also moved its Tablet PC business to Poole's jurisdiction from that of Jeff Raikes, its group vice president in charge of productivity and business services.
"This basically reflects Microsoft's contention that digital media is going to drive the next generation of consumer PC sales," said Matt Rosoff, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft, a Kirkland research company that closely monitors the company's internal maneuverings."
