He jumped to a ship that is engulfed in a raging inferno and has a double decker bus sized hole in its hull.

hardly win for him or M$. He's gonna be the guy that put Zynga out of business.

It's a win win for gamers.

You'll see he will stabilize Zynga, Zynga will be bought and he will double his salary..

Ms at one point wanted to buy Zynga...

They will be able to buy it much cheaper, if they do go after it later on..
