I can think of at least two things I like about each of them.

This says a lot about how well WP8 and RT are doing. Things are not good and that is expected.

Not at all, actually. If you read some other articles on the internet about Sinofsky's departure, it had almost entirely to do with office politics. He was a good employee that led his divisions to timely and successful product releases, but he was butting heads with a lot of his colleagues. According to those sources, he was upsetting the structure and culture within Microsoft, so they felt he had to leave before more people started quitting.

Tell websites to kindly take this news off, else Apple will file a suit against Microsoft for copying them by removing the employees after Apple did so.

It's hard to see Steven Sinofsky leave after all the things he had done to make microsoft the company it is now...

Ha, Ballmer needs a scapegoat for this WP/RT debacle.

I think Bill Gates has to return at some point to save MS.

I'm glad you got another piece of news to reaffirm your irrational hatred toward Microsoft (as is evident from pretty much all of your comments), but that is not the reason why he left. Please see my Comment #15 above.

It 's all about is sick and tired of working.
In a big corporation where main
focus of CEO`s is to keep
there's positions.
And they just fight for
this doing nothing good
for company and for
themselves.
Apple same.
Period.
