Well, have fun. At least in colleges you're less likely to get canned even if you angered some people.

For example, refusing to curve test grades even if the class average was NEGATIVE 20% and the highest was a positive 40% (remove points for incorrect answers, add points for correct answers).

"said he intends to teach "product development""
Correction: "said he intends to teach "crappy product development and how to ignore the consumer while forcing said crappy product down their throats""

There, that's better.

Hey, at least he has work experiences. I bet there are business management professors that never worked in the field they're teaching.

Simply because he was in charge of developing a product that is arguably crappy, doesn't necessarily mean he agreed with the direction of the project was following; if he didn't get along with the rest of the company, maybe it's because he thought they were idiots.

"Ballmer is on this big kick to get different pieces of the company working together and Sinofsky had his middle finger extended," said a former Microsoft executive.

When your project group and your boss rebels against you (in this case kicked out), there's only so much you can do with one hand tied behind your back.

"teach "product development" using Windows 8 as an example...

Yeah, and for that you pay a gazillion $$ to get a Harvard degree.
