Less than two years after being scooped up by Samsung, CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik has left the company and his role as software engineer behind him. His reason for departure is that he "just decided to try something new."




Despite his departure, Kondik seems to be a big fan of Samsung's latest flagship, the Galaxy S4. He says that the new Galaxy "blows the competition out of the water" and that its specifications are second to none. The new TouchWiz interface, however, is another story. Kondik says that it "feels like it has been sent a few years back in time to the Froyo days."


Kondik leaves Samsung on good terms and he stated in a blog post that he might even have another position already lined up. He said to his readers "ask me in a couple of months." Where ever Steve lands, we wish him the best of luck and cannot wait to see the awesome new things he does with CyanogenMod.
