Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's head of operating systems, is going to take a year-long leave of absence from the biz once Windows 10 has rolled out.

By November, Microsoft should have finished emitting Windows 10 to smartphones, completing the play Redmond is making for a single operating system to cover all possible computers and devices. Once that's done, Belfiore will be gathering up his family and heading for the high seas.

"SO ... after dreaming about the idea for years ... and with our kids getting ALMOST too old for something crazy ... we've decided that we are going to take our family on the EDUCATIONAL TRIP OF OUR LIFETIME," Belfiore wrote on his Facebook page.

"In January – we're heading out on SEMESTER AT SEA for a journey around the world, along with 600+ college students and a handful of faculty and 'lifelong learners' like us. We think a floating college campus will be an amazing environment for everyone in our family to get a chance to see and experience the diversity all around the world and better appreciate what we have here."

My Opinion.

Users Happy? Job Done? In what alternate universe?  Maybe Joe should read a few forums like this and see what people think of his work.

I thought Mobile wasn't even out yet.  On the rest of what I'm thinking, 'tis best to keep silent.  :axe:

UPDATE: Lumia sales are down, followup article in The Register, here.  Some claim it's because folks are waiting for the 950.  If so, then why did Belfiore leave?  The article has other info, like the low stress on the models, sorta kicking them to the curb.

 

A year for someone to be away when Mobile is supposed to be key and in Win10's first year of existence, sounds funky.

 

Sorry, but too many things are going wrong.  To many events and problems look like bad top brass.
