Michael Lopp, with a unique perspective as always:

Love him or hate him, Scott Forstall’s departure makes Apple a more stable company, and I wonder if that is how it begins.

I tend to be an Apple apologist, and I’ll defend Cook’s move to fire Forstall 100 times over. It’s the right move, if it means teams can work better together.

But sometimes the “right” move isn’t always as seems. After all, firing Steve Jobs was the “right move” in 1985. Only time will tell with Forstall though.
