    So true.

    Lot's of MSFT folks were prior Apple employees.

    As they say, money talks and BS walks.

    Do you honestly believe that Apple is loyal to you? Business is business. People go where the money is, but some go where they're challenged. People always assume that others switch companies because they have no loyalty. Jobs with computer companies, banks, whomever, is not about loyalty. If someone offers a more interesting job, or one that pays more, then it doesn't matter as long as they like their new job is as rewarding as their previous job, or more so.

    I'd like to see this question asked as a poll of the apple community.

    It should be a scale of 1-10 I think.. as some people have been really screwed by Apple (Beige G3 -> OS X anyone?), and others are evangelistically pro apple.
