What is more interesting, however, is rumours that Panos Panay was reportedly looking for a new role — either inside, or outside of Microsoft. Apparently, Panay considered a leave of absence from Microsoft and might have even considered joining Apple. Mary Jo Foley was unable to confirm this with more sources, so the credibility of this remains uncertain.
I hope Microsoft deviates from the route they have taken (similarly to what Apple is doing) and refrains from charging exorbitant prices for RAM and SSD upgrades. If not then they should at least be industry standard off-the-shelf parts, so users can upgrade them themselves. This is one of the aspects of Apple’s hardware I loathe — I don’t like to feel screwed.
