Microsoft Right Sizes, or Cuts 800 More
Another sizable chunk of Microsoft's work force has been pink slipped; this time, the cut was 800 employees. Microsoft at the beginning of the year let go 1,400 softies, and then about 3,000 more in May. While the original layoff announcement of 5,000 has been exceeded by this last round of cuts, Microsoft likely made up the difference through new hires (but that's just a guesstimate).
In the even more bad news department, Microsoft's Ballmer said the possibility of trimming more jobs remains.
