8,000 for next layoff - New comment on Windows 7 and a Grab Bag of Microsoftness Before F....

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Windows 7 and a Grab Bag of Microsoftness Before F...":

I have it from a pretty good source that a 7% layoff is locked in and 8000 people will be getting the boot.

I've also heard that lessons were learned from last time and there will be a concerted effort to not make the same mistakes (firing people that you have to hire back next day as independent consultants, dragging it out, allowing leaks, etc)

Could it be false? Of course. Only time will tell. But I would put my personal confidence in the source at about 60%, so take that for what it's worth. If I had to bet I'd bet we see the 8000 or so folks getting cut pretty soon and overlay resources taking the brunt of the hit.

(CRF'ing these for now - looks like we'll get Layoff Version 3 right)


  • On the back side of the links in the Breitling Watch , there should be a clear manufacturer's marking, and the strap should have the model number. If the Navitimer World lacks these marks. Also, the steel used in the fakes, for obvious cost-cutting reasons, is usually cheaper-looking than the steel used for Montbrillant Datora . Plus, the nine o'clock subdial in fakes shows the days of the week instead of the date, and the font is often wrong when compared to the Breitling Avenger .
