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.

Meh. I've had enough with the 21st century and the Metro interface. Throwing every resource at touchscreens and making a system not suited for laptops or desktops was a mistake. Microsoft should have kept what worked well enough.

You mean the part where he said they needed to do away with their enterprise IT customers?
