The Wall Street Journal said that Don has been contemplating this move for a long time and wanted to get back into the bay area where he owns a house. I am skeptical. The timing is just too unbelievable that this has nothing to do with the XBox One launch debacle or the Microsoft purge, err "reorganization", to be done this week or so.



Pretty much what I was thinking as well.

After inserting both feet in his mouth and swallowing to the knees during E3 coinciding with Ballmer's re-org (still thinking he should fire himself while he's at it) Zynga is an excellent fit for him.

Jumping from one sinking ship to another that just happens to be sitting a little deeper in the water
