This is a thread about the new Microsoft CEO. Not Windows, not Metro, not the damn start menu. Can we stick to the topic, perhaps?

I wish Steve the best. Satya is hopefully a breath of fresh air, and assuming he gets MS running on all cylinders, it could be a huge turn around. thumb.gif

The biggest threat to microsoft and the biggest headache of the new ceo is customers not upgrading or jumping ship. I wonder what could cause that?

PS They are soo committed to the problem, they actually line the walls with the metro theme to reinforce it.

This is amazing news, I don't think they could've picked somebody better. This guy actually knows what resources and capabilities are available to them and I'd like to think he'd be able to focus on improving the technology they have and building new functionalities, rather than repackaging existing products and pushing everything they have on marketing.

Crushing news. They needed someone fresh from the outside that gets it and can take MS to the next level. RIP MS.

Many think that Nadella is somewhat of a safe choice for Microsoft. He is personable, and well-liked at Microsoft and within the technology world at large. But he isn't bringing fresh perspective or any outside influence.

Anyone could do better than that idiot Ballmore, but, I agree, I also don't like the sound of where they are heading. Even Gates emphasized cloud computing.

After listening to his first interview, I am encouraged that they chose the right guy for the job. He's not overly excited. He doesn't have insane goals. He seems down to Earth and inspiring.

Good Luck Mr. Nadella! thumb.gif

Go figure, born he's born in India.

I really thought he was a Japanese but still an Asian though. tongue.gif
