Why did Jed Mccaleb leave ripple?

Curious to know why Jed decided to leave Ripple and start Stellar. Why didn't he just improve Ripple. Just to mention, I'm a fan of both companies.

In my opinion, that is because of fees. As we already known that Ripple need 2 XRP for add trustline while XLM only need 0.05 XLM. Also, they both have faster time while do transactions whete XLM have less fee for add trustline. So XLM is better than XRP. In addition, XLM have so many platform that easy to use for interacting with stellar blockchain.

Jed had a long string of bad ideas that Ripple's Board of Directors refused to implement. So Jed started Stellar based on those ideas. ed wanted Ripple to do a Facebook giveaway. Ripple would not do that. So that was one of the first things Stellar did. The giveaway was generally considered a disaster. As it became clear that each of his rejected ideas were bad, Stellar pivoted to become a clone of Ripple.
