Microsoft "Although Bill Gates stepped away from his day-to-day role at Microsoft nearly five years ago, he still keeps a close eye on the company he co-founded - and he isn't always happy with what he sees. During a recent interview broadcast this morning on CBS This Morning, the Microsoft chairman was asked by Charlie Rose whether he was happy with Steve Ballmer's performance as chief executive. Noting that there have been 'many amazing things' accomplished under Ballmer's leadership in the past couple of years, Gates said he was not satisfied with the company's innovations." It's impossible to deny by this point that Microsoft hasn't done well in mobile. It would be more surprising if Gates had denied it.

Not satisfied? Its a freakin greek tragedy. Nokia which jumped all aboard the Microsoft ship went from 35% of the market 2 years ago to 3% today. That's pretty much a catastrophic failure. I wouldn't be surprised to see them out of business soon. Course, thats one less big supporter of Linux and open source in the market. I think that was the whole point anyway. I think Microsoft just couldn't fill the vacuum left by their decline. Instead Samsung came along and scooped it up. Better them than Microsoft anyways.
