The rumor mills are spinning wildly about Steve Sinofsky, the outgoing Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows Live chief. Now Sinofsky is starting to answer some of the gossip.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer earlier this week announced Sinofsky's departure, offering no reason and opening the door to plenty of speculation. Sinofsky was also tight-lipped about his sudden exit, which came three months after the Windows 8 launch.
"It is impossible to count the blessings I have received over my years at Microsoft," Sinofsky said when his departure was first announced. "I am humbled by the professionalism and generosity of everyone I have had the good fortune to work with at this awesome company."
