    Microsoft's Vista Blogger Quits As Redmond Exodus Builds

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | White did not provide a reason for his decision. To be sure, his position
    | could not have been an easy one. White's posts often elicited hundreds of
    | responses from Vista users complaining about the operating system's numerous
    | glitches and quirks.
    |
    | His departure also raises questions about Microsoft's ability to retain
    | talent in the Web 2.0 world.
    |
    | [...]
    |
    | Earlier this year, Microsoft Business Division president Jeff Raikes said he
    | would retire in September, to be replaced by former Juniper Networks chief
    | operating officer Stephen Elop.
    |
    | Microsoft's merger and acquisitions chief Bruce Jaffe stepped down at the end
    | of February.
    |
    | To boot, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates will give up full-time duties at the
    | company in July.
    |
    | The departures highlight one of Microsoft's biggest challenges as a mature
    | company: attracting and retaining Silicon Valley's top talent. In its early
    | days, Microsoft could entice recruits with an entrepreneurial environment and
    | stock options that eventually turned secretaries into millionaires.

    Even the Microsoft-friendly Disinformation Week calls it "an exodus". So the
    prophecies were not so self-fulfilling but rather real all along.

    | It’s hard to make the case that Sievert, who was responsible for the

    | many consumers and businesses still consider the new release buggy, sluggish
    | and incompatible with existing software and drivers. * *

    Wow. Microsoft loses a "blogger" while Google loses it's CIO and VP of
    Engineering. In chess this is the equivalent of sacrificing a pawn to
    capture your opponents queen.

    The Munchkin conveniently snipped out all the relevant bits on the face of it.
    The article is about "Redmond Exodus". The blogger is _only an example_. Gates
    and Raikes are listed too.

    By the way, 'who' is Google and why should one care? The last time I heard,
    Google was some proprietary software company that runs its software on Linux.
    You know, kind of like Oracle, which is better off deceased (MySQL and
    Postgresql could inherit its place).
