I am humbled by the professionalism and generosity of everyone I have had the good fortune to work with at this awesome company".
Steve Ballmer, CEO at Microsoft has also shared his views. He said, “He is grateful for Sinofsky's contributions, citing new releases of Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Microsoft Surface and others. But Sinofsky won't be part of what comes next from the company”.
