Brian Valentine jumps Microsoft ship for Amazon

Posted by David Hunter at 5:18 PM ET.

On Friday he was congratulating the Vista team on the release of RC1, but today Brian Valentine is Amazon-bound:

Brian Valentine, the Microsoft senior vice president in charge of Windows development, is leaving to join, a company representative said in an e-mailed statement this afternoon. It’s a major departure, but it might not qualify as the biggest surprise: Microsoft had said in August that it planned to reassign Valentine to another area of the company after Windows Vista was released. Senior Vice President Jon DeVaan was brought in at the time to ultimately assume Valentine’s role.

We mentioned that rearrangement here. Valentine will start at Amazon in mid-September.

Update: More at the Seattle Times.
