Reller recently took over part of the duties of Steven Sinofsky, who was the president of the Windows Division until he stepped down earlier this month. Julie Larson-Green took over the engineering direction of Windows, while Reller assumed control of the business and marketing duties of the flagship OS. During the question-and-answer period, the moderator asked how the departure of Sinofsky will affect Windows development. Reller responded that the Windows team has a work ethic that does not rely on any one leader.

"The team, holistically, is in great, great shape," she said.
