Submission + - A Microsoft to Google Developer Exodus?

recoiledsnake writes: We have heard about lots of talented developers jumping ship from Microsoft to Google, but has the trend reversed now? Dare Obasanjo (a MS employee) writes about a few high profile people either making the jump to MS from Google or picking MS over Google after being given offers at both. Sergey Solyanik is back to Microsoft and he primarily gripes about the culture and lack of career development at Google. He writes "Everything is pretty much run by the engineering — PMs and testers are conspicuously absent from the process. Google as an organization is not geared — culturally — to delivering enterprise class reliability to its user applications." Danny Thorpe who was the key architect of Google Gears is back at Microsoft for his second stint working on developer technologies related to Windows Live.
