Borland Brain Drain Continues: "According to sources and documents Borland filed with the federal government, the Scotts Valley, Calif., company will say goodbye to Blake Stone, the company's chief technology officer as of Feb. 6. Stone is said to be headed to Microsoft Corp. to pursue 'an offer he could not refuse,' a source said.
Meanwhile, Chuck Jazdzewski, formerly chief scientist and architect of Borland's Delphi technology, left the company last month and is also said to be headed to Microsoft. Sources said Jazdzewski will be joining Microsoft's Avalon team. Avalon is the presentation layer of the company's upcoming Longhorn operating system, which is expected in 2005 or 2006."
