Simonyi has left Microsft..

Suprised this hasn't been posted  yet, but Simonyi has left MS to head up a new start-up called Intentional Software that focuses on programmer productivity.  Here's a link to textual version (aka no registration needed) of the NY Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2002/09/17/technology/17SOFT.html?ei=5007&en=32d4d1af8909b6e6&ex=1032840000&partner=USERLAND&pagewanted=print&position=top

I wondered why we hadn't seen an Intentional Programming product from Microsoft yet.

And I believe he leaves with all the patents and ideas he helped create during his time at Microsoft. Ordinary people doesn't get these kind of deals.

Now I only pray for the day when MS decides to ditch hungarian notation, at least in DirectX.
