There is a constant in our lives: Change. Change has arrived at the top of MSFT.
Like the Eagles say: This could be heaven or this could be hell...
Funny how everybody is a prognosticator now, and how many names are flying all over the media. I was really amazed to see *isaB in the list of names. You could easily tell that the media just took out the executive page and put it online as possible candidates hahahaha. Microsoft needs to become a lean, mean, efficient customer pleasing profit making machine. Now the 64Billion question is: Is the board going to bet the bank on an outsider or is it going to play safe and promote an old timer? Maybe the problem is that there are many old timers presiding over newbies, with a few exceptions. The problem is not the CEO, it is changing the whole culture and organization, specially the marketing and sales organization. There are many capable people at MSFT, maybe their work is just focused on license revenue or perhaps ambiguous revenue...
Thanks SteveB so long and thanks for all the fish.
