Martin Taylor was a high profile exec with Microsoft. He was one of the key execs in fighting the open source movement and more recently, was a senior executive in Live and MSN.
He just abruptly left. Why? No one knows and Microsoft isn’t talking. Microsoft Watch wonders as well.
Why is this interesting? This was the guy in charge of the marketing battle against Google. It’s quite curious, especially since he was a very highly placed executive. No sabbatical, no retirement, no gold watch. Just “poof”.
Maybe he took Ballmer’s parking space by accident? Spilled his coffee?
