Summary: Microsoft’s BPOS chief has had enough and after 21 years in the company he is finally leaving
Dave Thompson, the man who helped brief journalists who 'planted' favourable coverage about Windows Vista and was mentioned in class action/antitrust litigation, is quitting the company after two decades there, continuing a seriously bad exodus which leaves Microsoft poorly coordinated. Here is the report Jan Wildeboer linked to a short while ago:
Dave Thompson, who headed up Redmond’s Office 365 business, is retiring from the company later this year after 21 years at Microsoft.
Microsoft Nick has some background about Dave Thompson:
When Thompson joined Microsoft in 1990, he led development in networking and worked his way up the Windows NT group.
