I wrote a blog last week about why I left Microsoft. The number of emails generated by that (but only one comment – people don’t want to be seen as agreeing or disagreeing around MS in public). It was a flurry of emails – the sad thing 21 emails in total – more than 70% (16) agreed with me that it was a sad situation. 5 didn’t agree with my rationale – telling me I should have stayed and fought it out.
