    How about "frog marched" to the nearest bonfire and tossed on top?

    Win8's overall generally poor reception may have had something to do with his departure.

    Lol, wake up the fafan, Sinofsky was fire and the sales go bad, if thing was going well, Sinofsky will be already work on Windows 9. Don't believe all the crap you read, when a guy go, it's because something go wrong. Sinofsky is not the kind of guy to retire early.

    Anyway, I was right few month ago when I say they will fire him, when the board will see the sales, I was right few months ago. So let see if I will be right again in few months, until now everything go as I predicted.

    Exactly.
    For a hyperactive goofball like Ballmer to say 8 sales are "modest", they're most likely appalling.

    Actually, I take back what I said above this.
    It appears this could be nothing more than a failed power grab by Sinofsky.

    I like how in the article MS acknowledges that he stepped in to try to clean up the Vista disaster. I post that just as a chit for those who maintain that Vista was never any type of failure and a great OS from Microsoft.

    Microsoft can't do wrong ( I really like this one, lol )

    Something I never see mention anywhere. May be some of the peoples who purchase iPad and Android stuff are just tire to see Windows wall to wall , they may just want something new.

    Change can be good my wife recently moved from her iPhone to a droid because after three years of using her iPhone she just didn't want to have the same look and feel with the new iPhone so she switched.
