Windows Head Steven Sinofsky To Leave Microsoft

According to All Things Digital
“I am grateful for the many years of work that Steven has contributed to the company,” CEO Steve Ballmer said. “The products and services we have delivered to the market in the past few months mark the launch of a new era at Microsoft. We’ve built an incredible foundation with new releases of Microsoft Office, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Microsoft Surface, Windows Server 2012 and ‘Halo 4,’ and great integration of services such as Bing, Skype and Xbox across all our products. To continue this success it is imperative that we continue to drive alignment across all Microsoft teams, and have more integrated and rapid development cycles for our offerings.”
So basically, Ballmer wants more rapid development times of Windows just like Apple is doing with OS X. This doesn't make any sense to me. Windows is a product that is used by Millions of people each day, and this figure is significantly higher than any OS share in the market. So Windows has to be bug free (to a certain extent) and should be solid, and for accomplishing these tasks, more bit of work has to be done on coding Windows. 

The Verge points that:
Critically, Sinofsky was not ousted because of any issues with the launch of Windows 8 or the Surface, sources tell us; in fact, it's possible that his departure was already planned, but his ability to execute on Windows 8's retail release was seen as an asset worth keeping him around long enough to see it through. But his attitude (and skill set) as an aggressive, tight-siloed Windows boss — not a holistic Microsoft boss — may have done him in. Given that the future of Microsoft's ecosystem would require tight collaboration between disparate divisions, Sinofsky's future path as an executive at Microsoft was essentially at an end.
So, according to them, departure of Sinofsky has been just like Forstall--Both clashed with their respective colleagues.
