He wants to "see what the non-Microsoft world has to offer"

Microsoft's recent restructuring effort has scared a lot of company veterans off, and that trend continues as a 25-year employee says his goodbyes. 

According to Re/code, Windows executive Antoine Leblond is leaving Microsoft at end-of-day Monday. He's spent a quarter of a century with the Redmond, Washington tech giant.

He spent his first 20 years in the Office unit, and then moved over to the Windows unit for his last five years. 

“After almost 25 years, I’ve decided it’s time for me to go out and see what the non-Microsoft world has to offer,” said Leblond in an email to fellow Microsoft employees. “Every single day I have had here has been amazing in its own way, and I will never look back on all of these years with anything but fondness, pride in what we’ve accomplished together, and a real appreciation for having been lucky enough to be part of so many awesome things. I am sad to leave all of you, but also incredibly excited for what comes next.”

Microsoft recently said goodbye to Tony Bates --  the former Skype CEO in charge of Microsoft's business development -- and Tami Reller, the co-head of Microsoft's Windows unit. It also said a major goodbye to former CEO Steve Ballmer (who actually remains on the board) as Satya Nadella moved up to CEO status in January. 

Microsoft has also made considerable changes to its executive ranks, such as Julie Larson-Green -- former head of Microsoft's Devices and Studios Group who recently led Microsoft hardware development -- becoming chief experience officer for the company’s Applications and Services Group; Stephen Elop -- the former CEO of Nokia -- taking over the Devices & Studios Group; Mark Penn, who was an executive vice president at Microsoft overseeing advertising and strategy, becoming chief strategy officer, and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates stepping in as Founder and Technology Advisor.
