Wow, not bad for a guy who go hiding behind mummy's skirt.

I feel sorry for non-senior executives who lost their jobs in Nokia.

Nokia board members/investors/stock holders r dumb. Elop was planted to sink Nokia before going back home to Microsoft with the loot.... Symbian was the biggest OS around... they could have overhauled it smoothly with the right team.... they were ready to dabble with Android... they blew hundreds milions dollars on releasing models and discontinuing them the next day ie: nokia n9 (meego os) then they went WinMobile os... the "kiler" os... bravo Elop. Mission accomplished. U should be in jail for fraudulence and corporate scheming...

This guy needs to go to Jail for corporate fraud on a massive level. He had every intent on destroying Nokia from the beginning, by making them weaker to the point where they had to sell out [ cheaply if i may say ].

I hope there is a way where this deal can be cancelled.

He was paid to sell nokia in the first phrase and those fools (also known as promoters or shareholders) were like morons seeing everything and agreeing what he was saying

What did Nokia achieve by all this? What was the need for getting a Microsoft Trojan Horse into their business??
This guy got Nokia sold.

Heck, even Symbian was better selling than windows Phone. I'm not kidding: Smartphones' market share of Nokia was 32% in 2010 which is now just 3%.

Heck, if they had focused their entire efforts on Symbian, it could've reached heights.
It was a matured OS, it had basics covered. All it needed was Web browser upgrades, screen size support & some more apps in the app store.....

Or hell, even N9's OS could've done well. I think its name was MeeGo... (?)

yeah - long awaited wish isnt it F****er elop ???

  • AnonD-162319

Trojan horse of the 21st century... He Should be prosecuted for corporate fraud

For those who think we will suffocate and die in pain without MS's products, I, for an example, I'm using Linux Mint on my desktop. There are (almost always, and more and more) open source alternatives. Open source is the future - for desktops or for mobile and even for hardware, pharma industry, etc.. I don't see a great future for closed source. Sharing and collaboration is in the human nature. Wake up, open your eyes and support either AOSP, CyanogenMod, Sailfish OS, MeeGo, Firefox OS or any other open alternatives you like - they are all equaly good. It's better for all! Those who close the door will be the first to suffer. OPEN MEANS FREEDOM!

ahaaa.... At last TROJAN HORSE gets paid well as NOKIA didn't paid him since they expect him to be CEO to help company and lead to zenith and not as TROJAN HORSE, am damn sure he will get much better hike which he really deserves, may be he already got paid which if off the record.

anyways ALL OTHER COMPANIES beware of these kind of TROJAN HORSE virus.

these people are damn good ECONOMIC HITMAN.

  • Thorpune

What an unfair world, the trojans get paid for the devastation they bring. Sad for all the people who lost their jobs and very sad for Finland which did nothing to stop that worm.

He SHOULD PAY at least this amount for damages!
