Microsoft executive Mike Nash to leave the company

The company did not say if the Windows executive has taken a role with another company

Mike Nash, a high-ranking executive on Microsoft’s Windows team, is leaving the company.

He joins Bill Veghte, another longtime Microsoft veteran who also recently left the Windows team shortly after the launch of Windows 7.

Nash is corporate vice president of Windows Platform Strategy, where he has been responsible for security, Internet Explorer, emerging markets and ecosystem management. He’s been at Microsoft since 1991 and has worked on Microsoft’s security initiatives and Windows marketing.

Microsoft confirmed that Nash will leave the company in "a couple weeks." It did not say where he is heading. "In his 19 years, Mike made an impact in a number of key roles at the company. We appreciate his service and wish him well," Microsoft said in a statement.

In mid-January, Microsoft announced that Veghte, who had been at the company for 19 years, most recently as senior vice president of Windows, would leave by the end of January.

Veghte helped launch Windows 7 with his peer Steven Sinofsky, who was promoted in July to a new position of president of the Windows division.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
