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 that would work.

But I think you need some sort of standard Linux distro to run it on, because there are too many ones that have too many little and big differences to make it work.

Android is reasonably standard and has it. These Synology DiskStations basically run Linux and they have specifics apps for them. iOS and OS X have it. Windows has it.

I believe Ubuntu has something like it, but IIRC they don't offer paid apps.
