Windows PC Magazine reports that bookies at the Ladbrokes betting service give 1:4 odds that Nokia CEO Stephen Elop will be the next Microsoft CEO. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg comes in second place with 7:1 odds against, while Steven Sinofsky, previously head of the Windows division, comes in third at 12:1 odds against.

Without intending any disrespect, I can't imagine a worse choice for the next CEO than Mr. Elop. His blind fealty to Windows at Nokia cost the stock an 85% drop on his watch. Microsoft needs new directions and new ideas, not another Windows loyalist.

I seen some of the stuff from JetBrains especially their JS editor and it is indeed very nice. But I doubt I can get my employer to buy me a license when they are already paid for a copy of VS.

If I am not doing VB.NET / C# stuff I normally just use sublime text or maybe Eclipse if I can get the debugging to work with IIS.
