Farewell then, Mr Elop: It wasn't actually your fault


Re: Don't burn the platform you're standing on

"Although it's fair to say the writing was on the wall long before Elop turned up, it was the idiot who leaked that memo who doomed his colleagues and destroyed any future the mobile division might have had up until that point."

I think that's putting it a bit strong, I'd say the memo was just another nail in the coffin. ;)

Any punter could see Nokia weren't interested in selling anything they wanted to buy *before* the memo was leaked, and that was the problem that Elop inherited and he failed to fix it.
