Poisoned chalice to be passed

Microsoft's in-house blogger who has been defending the Vista operating system has quit. He apparently has moved on to bigger and better things, having now worked for the blog-centric marketing and public relations firm, BuzzCorps.
Nick White has not blogged any reason for his decision, which has led many to speculate that he had a gut full from having to defend the operating system from angry users. The job is a poisoned chalice with hundreds of responses from Vista users complaining about the operating system.
The news is bad for Microsoft who really needs Web 2.0 people such as White if it is going knock the wind out of Google.
There is no news on a replacement at the time of going to press.
