Here is Steven Sinofsky's resignation letter to Microsoft employees
Steven Sinofsky, the head of Windows at Microsoft, has shockingly left the company weeks after the launch of the Surface tablet, the first Windows device Microsoft built on its own in its decades of history. Adding even more shock to the news is the fact that many saw Sinofsky as being the man capable of becoming the next chief executive of Microsoft after Ballmer.

Obviously, none of this will happen. We can speculate a lot on why exactly, but nothing would explain Sinofsky's departure better than his own words. In a typically lengthy email, the man who's known to post hundreds of words on the Windows blog about new releases, made it clear he has "decided to leave the company to seek new opportunities that build on these experiences."

Here is Sinofsky's clarification:

“Some might notice a bit of chatter speculating about this decision or timing. I can assure you that none could be true as this was a personal and private choice that in no way reflects any speculation or theories one might read-about me, opportunity, the company or its leadership.”

On the other hand, speculation is still out there with many claiming that it was Sinofsky's unsettling character that allegedly did not allow for good team work. Moreover, while he was not fired, sources are saying the company is not too upset about him leaving either.

Steven Sinofsky will be replaced by Julie Larson-Green as the head of the Windows team at Microsoft.

Below is the full resignation email from Sinofsky.
