Roy Rubin Leaving Magento - May 1, 2014

I can hardly believe the tweet I just received from Roy Rubin saying he was stepping down as COO of Magento:

For many of us Roy is the heart-and-sole of Magento and see him leave, is well, disappointing.  I wonder how the community will react to his departure.  For me it raises questions and I now more than ever want to know when Magento 2.0 will be released.  Spending over 4 years working on Magento 2.0 is starting to drag and I wonder if it has anything to do with Roy's departure as COO.

I'll report back after my trip to Magento Imagine this year.
