Microsoft's Rob Short joins the exodus

Posted by Brier Dudley

No wonder Microsoft is rewriting Windows from the ground up -- all the old timers who understand its jumbled innards are retiring.

Mary Jo Foley noted today that Rob Short, vice president of Windows Core Technology, is also joining the alumni club.

A 20-year veteran and member of the hallowed original NT team, Short was an elder Windows wizard.

Short also delivered key testimony during Microsoft's antitrust trial, carefully explaining to District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly how the performance of Windows would deteriorate if bits and pieces such as Internet Explorer were stripped out of the system.

More recently, he manned the demolition backhoe for a ceremony starting the campus reconstruction along 148th Avenue Northeast.
