Today (July 10 2017) Microsoft laying off the entire workforce at Wilsonville Oregon. This group does the Surface Hub development work. Future Surface Hub work will be done in Redmond. Everyone is packing up their personal belongings into cardboard boxes.

Here is the WARN notice filed with the state of Oregon - it outlines what's going on
I wonder, too, if us folks in the downtown Portland office will be affected; sales org already affected company-wide.
I would imagine that OSG will get cuts in the next round, win10 is done and is sustain engineering. How much more can you invest in endlessly repackaging win7 with a new ux ?
Yes, I was laid off. Mechanical Engineer. Lots of very talented people going out the door. What a shame.
@1lrj my thoughts exactly - and when people reported that the cyber roles were hit nobody believed. This is a major hit for Wilsonville and so much more than just 'sales'
So much for sales positions being the ones laid off.
