Today is a rather momentous day at Microsoft, with its Executive Vice President Terry Myerson – who has overseen Windows since 2013 (and Windows Phone and Xbox, for a while) – is leaving the company after 21 years.
What it all means, and how the shakeup within the Windows organization will play out, will likely be debated for the next few months. But it's hard not to say that overseeing what is arguably the most significant ongoing software project in the world has had its challenge (and rewards).
Myerson sent out an email to his entire team and did a brief recap of his lengthy career at Microsoft, which was shared on LinkedIn. It's well worth the read. It's certainly hard to summarize a person's career in a single post, but Myerson's message goes a long way.
