When news that Microsoft Platforms and Services Division President Kevin Johnson was leaving the company broke Wednesday afternoon, it wasn't clear whether he was quitting or was fired. A regulatory filing today clears that up.
From the SEC filing:
"On July 23, 2008, Microsoft Corp. announced Kevin Johnson, President of the Microsoft Platforms and Services Division, is resigning and leaving the company to become chief executive officer of Juniper Networks, Inc."
Except that Microsoft's announcement on Wednesday said "Johnson will be leaving the company," without clarifying whether he jumped or was pushed.
That led to a round of speculation that continued Thursday among the journalists and Wall Street types gathered for Microsoft's Financial Analyst Meeting.
