Microsoft After much, much, much speculation, Microsoft let the cat out of the bag today: due to weak results, Microsoft is going to cut 5000 jobs. Those 5000 jobs will disappear over the course of 18 months, with 1400 jobs being cut immediately. Quarterly results, as well as the cost-cutting measures, were made known in a press release today.

And as long as that engineer doesn't have stolen copies of the actual MS code base he can't be touched legally.

But I very seriously doubt MS fired their competent people. It's not likely there's anyone of this calibre in that group of 5000
