A guy can only take that much crap before he leaves. That goes for everyone, Sinofsky included.

Ken Kutaragi knows what is happening, he did exactly the same at the other side of the globe. The only question is who will be Microsoft Kazuo Hirai?

It's sad to see "top dogs" leaving large companies such as Microsoft.
If it's because he plans to retire, then it's OK.
If he left MS to create his own venture, then it's 40% OK.
If he left MS to join competition, then sth is wrong at Microsoft; and it may end up reflecting on us - end users... SOONER OR LATER

Nothing thing can last forever! Thing always change! But what I wonder is whether Windows can keep its popularity or not without Steven Sinofsky!!!???

Eff teamwork. If you want it done properly, you have to do it yourself anyway. Every single time.
