Also effective now, Jon DeVaan has joined the Platforms and Services Division as senior vice president of engineering, sharing co-leadership of the COSD with Valentine. DeVaan will drive Windows OS development and cross-platform integration, as well as work on products and services that will follow Windows Vista once Valentine leaves the division.
