Well...she does have the resume of leading Windows out of the god awful Vista and in to Windows 7. So far, so good...

Sounds like a good move on Microsoft's part. Maybe she'll be smart enough to try to remove the stalker camera and forced internet connection, as well as try to hold the DRM being put back in after a few years.

Or, since she's not a gamer, she may not understand what the big deal is with the latter two. Only time will tell.

They've already removed the required connection and DRM. And, while the Kinect needs to be connected at all times, the camera can be turned off. Or turn it around to face away from you. Whatever. It's not a big *bleep*ing deal.

I think you'll find they went back on the forced internet connection thing, and the camera, as stated previously, can be turned off. It was kind of a big deal, the fact they changed their minds. Hell the "It should be named the Xbox 180" joke got more use then WSAD on a FPS gamer's keyboard!

Why not get someone with a background to run your gaming division?

Good, good.... I might be fine with this.

This is a little worrisome though because huge shifts in management mid project have a bad history. I mean, look at the original Black Ops, I am pretty sure it was a step down from MW2 after Activision called it quits. I just really hope this gal takes this huge project in the right direction, man.
