The Microsoft CEO succession process appears to be stalled. This is a company with immense human, technical, and financial resources; the tech industry is filled with intelligent, energetic, dedicated candidates. What's wrong with the matchmaking process?

The gist: Microsoft needs someone strong enough to stand up to the old guard still looking over everyone's shoulder (Gates and Ballmer) - and essentially dismiss them - since the company needs to look to the future, not the past.

Good luck with that.

I think Office 365 is quite a good idea. Innovative ideas are nice, but they need to be good as well.

As a company you want your users on the latest version. You can give it away, like Apple with iWork, or continue to extract money, like Microsoft with Office 365.

If your'e in to Office than the O365 plans provide pretty good deals, I guess.
