Re: Ballmer Bails
Why not? Then we could say a final goodbye to MS :-(

Re: What about the obvious?
Interesting choice, they really would need to PAY LARGE though.

 

Any ex-Apple executives that might fit the bill?

Re: What about the obvious?
I wonder if Eric Schmidt is on the short list, because his tenure at Chairman of Google is really kind of being a dead end job, even though Google's future is very cutting edge with going for the sky in everything tech.  Eric has the distinction of the Apple Board years, his dubious association with Jobs, and then again, he innovated and figured out Android and Chrome many current day Google products.  MSFT would need to pay and arm and leg to get him.  Another advantage, Eric has a direct line into the WH and Obama.

What about the obvious?
Sometimes, people retire because ... they are ready to retire. Or at least they think they're ready. Not everyone wants to be carried out feet first from the corner office, although sometimes it seems that way.

Re: Ballmer Bails
Yeah, it's hard to see who the replacement is:

 

Not Elop, surely?

Ballmer Bails
Went to the Jobs movie last night, and while watching what happened to Jobs given the boot at the old Apple, I was wondering to myself how much longer will Gates support Ballmer. Here we are, the next day, and it finally happened.  Today, all of the comics come out of the woodwork to make laughs, jokes, spoofs, etc, yet, although well deserved, the bigger issue is that MSFT is a DOW 30 component that is a troubled company with an unknown future at this point.  Many initiatives are failing or status quo.  The shift away from Windows to other OS is happening faster and faster.  Competitors everywhere, chipping away.  Past relationships are fading away, such as with HP and Dell and others. The next CEO has to be one heck of a brilliant and dynamic leader to reinvent the company for the next decade.  Too bad Marissa Mayer is already taken, but, that is the kind of person Microsoft will need to shake it up and make it a leader and not a follower.

Re: BALLMY ARMY
Remind me next time you're in NYC and I'll tell you about the time I met Gene Simmonds.

Re: BALLMY ARMY
Maybe that's his retirement plan...KISS seems to be one of the many comparisons for Ballmer:

Re: Ballmer Step Down
Good points, Ritch. Nokia wasn't an exclusive partner for Microsoft, but I wonder how much their tight relationship hurt in the eyes of other potential partners. I think it hurt Nokia most...Neither are thriving right now.
