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.

iWork is subsidised by devices, while Office is a major product for Microsoft. For MSOffice consumers are not the main target now. It's quite clear from their initiatives and features.

iWork is nice, but that's it. For all it's niceties, it's as viable in most places as Libre/OpenOffice.
That is, you can get things done without major issues... but MSOffice is just plain better.
