Steve Sinofsky's departure leaves Microsoft with a tainted legacy of Windows 8 and Windows RT and getting rid of them won't be that easy.

One would be forgiven for thinking that Steve Sinofsky’s departure from Microsoft this week was Steve Ballmer fulfilling his promise to make Microsoft more like Apple. Apple, cleared out key executives, Scott Forstall and John Browett, earlier this month and Microsoft followed suit with Sinofsky. In the case of Forstall and Sinofsky, both Apple and Microsoft are left with their unwanted legacies.
