According to fudzilla.com, after weeks of rumors, about 15,000 Microsoft employees are set to get their walking paper on January 15th, a week before Microsoft's Q2 earnings report.

Sadly, the computer giant appears to be cutting that many jobs from its worldwide operations, which currently employees around 90,000 people. That's almost 17 percent of Microsoft's total work force getting the boot.

No word on what departments will be hit yet, but fudzilla is reporting that “MSN might be carrying the brunt of the layoffs” with large staff cuts at Microsoft EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).

Microsoft hasn't officially addressed this issue, by the way. So it's still all rumors...sad, sad rumors....
