Here, for your enjoyment, are my top 10 reasons why someone might leave Microsoft:

10) Finally realized Seattle is cold and dreary.
9) Tired of stealing ideas from other companies.
8) New macho culture encourages NFL-style butt patting.
7) Milking a monopoly isn't particularly exciting.
6) Tired of catching crap because you bought a PS2.
5) Bill hurt your feelings.
4) All the good chicks are already taken.
3) Good hygiene is considered optional.
2) You're tired of saying, "Sieg Heil!"
1) The options gravy train has left the building.
