Microsoft executive, Steven Sinofsky has left the world’s largest software company barely two weeks after launching the flagship Window 8. The 23-year veteran of the company has refused to comment on his departure with insiders saying his exit was, “mutual”. The 47-year-old was widely tipped to become the next chief executive of Microsoft which has been struggling to keep pace with Apple and Google in mobile computing. “Shocking news;” was one analysts reaction.
