The Greatest Form of Flattery

Ars Technica: Steven Sinofsky, Windows President, leaving Microsoft effective immediately

Steven Sinofsky, President of Windows and Windows Live Division, is leaving Microsoft effective immediately, reports All Things D.

The move is claimed to be a result of growing discontent within the software giant, with a number of executives reportedly unhappy when working with him due to his failure to be a “team player.” Such a move has striking parallels with Scott Forstall’s recent exit from Apple.

I thought it was enough that Microsoft copied Apple’s integrated approach to hardware and software and their retail store design.

Now they’re copying how they fire senior executives?
