Steven Sinofsky leaving Microsoft

Steve Ballmer's Memo on Windows President's Departure

Apparently first in line for Microsoft's next CEO is leaving Microsoft,
just after very successful launch of Windows 8.

Just a few weeks ago, a very similar situation happened in Apple:
just days after a massive release of new products,
a head of iOS and MacOS, seen as possible next CEO, was replaced.

Interestingly enough, in case of Apple that was a start of 20% stock price drop,
after a long time of steady growth.
