Elop is gone

I can't say I'm sad about Elop finally leaving, but unfortunately this may just be one of the next steps toward new rounds of layoffs among the ex-Nokia people now working at Microsoft.

I'm happy to see Jo Harlow gone. I haven't got any inside knowledge how the decision to go to all-in to Windows Phone -platform happened, but I've always suspected that there was a lot of company politics involved and that Harlow was one of the key proponents of the WP-strategy. After all, she was one of the few old Nokia executives that had better position after the strategy change. As Symbian boss she had most to lose if MeeGo would've succeeded.
