And If you dont want to read its basically says

"Microsoft's Entertainment & Devices Div. President Robbie Bach sent an e-mail on Oct. 4 notifying staff that company veteran Rick Thompson will become Zune vice-president, responsible for overseeing the business operations of the Zune unit. Thompson will report to J Allard, the product design visionary who has held the position since Bryan Lee retired in April."

MS is bringing in the BIG GUNS to work on the ZUNE and it future. This is what I'm talking about MS, Lets show everyone what you can do.
