Products affected by latest Microsoft layoffs

We’re getting some more details about products that are being affected by the latest Microsoft layoffs. They include: Massive, the game advertising firm Microsoft had acquired; Response Point, the small-business voice over IP service; and .NET Micro Framework, the development platform for creating services for small devices.

Massive’s staff will be reduced 28 percent, according to a statement from the company.

The company will continue to support Response Point 1.0 but is evaluating what it’s going to do with the next version, the statement said.

The business model for the .NET Micro Framework is changing. The company will eliminate royalties from the distribution of the product, and it will now be a community-supported product. The source code will be made available to customers and the community.
