Microsoft In business school the first thing they teach you about CEOs is: it is the CEO’s job to increase the shareholder value of the company. Since taking the position Ballmer has decreased shareholder value, as reflected by stock price, by -56.63%. That. Is. Not. Good . . . Microsoft should be searching for a new CEO right now.

"not quite. Windows IS a successful product.
Symbian, not quite.

You need Windows. That's the difference. They're not going anywhere.

Speak for yourself; I've not needed windows for a number of years now. And I'm certainly not alone.

People need an OS. That OS doesn't always need to be Windows.
"

i so wish that you and your thinking would be "people". but parent was right. me and you liking alternative does not constitute as everyone.

windows is still product that is needed by many and i don't see MS tanking unless they simply can't figure out that ONLY all their newer businesses tank. but if they do figure that out, you can simply expect them as lean and mean machine again focused on their strength.
