And as for his comment that Forstall’s ouster resulted in cheering from employees in Cupertino, I’m sure that’s true, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cheering was not universal. At least within Forstall’s iOS division, many engineers and designers liked working under Forstall, and felt that he had their backs. He was divisive — polarizing — not universally disliked.

This is important. This essentially means that there are a group of engineers, teams and middle management folks who like(d) working for Forstall and now need to adapt to Cue's style.
Love him or hate him, Scott Forstall’s departure makes Apple a more stable company, and I wonder if that is how it begins.
