More on the Microsoft Exodus

Not that this latest has anything to do with Microsoft Live.com, but it does appear to be indicative of possible larger structural problems hampering MSFT.

Robert Scoble at Scobleizer gets an inside scoop:

“I just got a press release that Tjeerd Hoek, director or user experience design for Microsoft Windows, is now executive creative director of software and hardware convergence at Frog Design.

Tjeerd was well liked and well respected inside Microsoft.

Microsoft is seemingly in the middle of a full-bore executive cleanout. I’ve seen tons of executives leave, particularly in the MSN/Live division that’s struggling to compete with Google. Nearly every executive I knew inside that division is now gone.”

Don’t feel bad for them though. Forbes reports “Analysts are expecting the software maker to say fiscal third-quarter earnings rose 43 percent to 46 cents per share, on a 27 percent revenue rise to $13.89 billion.” Not everything is going wrong in Redmond.
