    Must have been a big fall out - often companies come out with some slinky PR - 'departed company' etc

    Violating Company Policies?

    I guess he was doing something he wasn't meant to and they kicked him out over it...

    One of El Reg's commentators wondered aloud "...wouldn't have to do with the Computerworld article in which he defends the use of SAP and Siebel CRM in-house at MS, now, would it?!?"

    Sounds suspiciously likely, doesn't it...?

    He may have had google.com as his homepage, that'd do it.

    I would think he has been probably talking to people he shouldn't have. Either that or w**nking in the toilet.

    Hehe, he probably flew in the face of convention and told the truth about something

    He probably installed non-MS software all over their network because it worked better and cost half the price

    Re: Microsoft send CIO Stuart Scott packing

    Regardless of what he did, he landed a new job pretty quickly. He started his new job, as COO of a mortgage lender, on Monday, November 26. The company he's working for announced that it had hired him just before Thanksgiving, on Wed., Nov. 21. So within three weeks of getting fired, he lined up another job. Pretty impressive. The recruiters I talked to for a couple of articles I wrote on Scott getting fired and him getting hired were surprised he found a new job so quickly, but some of them are skeptical about whether this new job is really so plum after all.

    It will be interesting to see how long he stays with this Mortgage company--and what he does next.
