I do wonder why he left, but it's hard to ignore the coincidence between Windows 8, and Sinofsky's departure... Windows 8, as much as you spin it otherwise, is not doing very well.. and Surface is a piece of garbage.
uh, according to what reports is it not doing very well, and how is the surface a piece of garbage ? methinks you're talking out of your behind.
Anyway, as has been said numerous times, when a high profile project leader leaves it's usually after a project is finished. this is the time for im to leave after the last and before the next. as for the reason for him leaving, it's simple. He wanted to much power and hated sharing it, he didn't want his department(windows) to cooperate with xbox, live, office, skydrive or any others, and he kept building walls and setting up roadblocks for other departments. Ballmer wanted more cooperated between departments and to make everything work together.
