Microsoft

As Satya Nadella becomes the third CEO of Microsoft, he brings a relentless drive for innovation and a spirit of collaboration to his new role. He joined Microsoft 22 years ago because he saw how clearly Microsoft empowers people to do magical things and ultimately make the world a better place. Many companies, he says, "aspire to change the world. But very few have all the elements required: talent, resources and perseverance. Microsoft has proven that it has all three in abundance."

Say what you will - I won't say anything, I know nothing about this stuff - but I love this webpage introducing the new CEO. Very well done.

"Say what you will - I won't say anything, I know nothing about this stuff - but I love this webpage introducing the new CEO."

I'll say that these CSS tricks and designs have been much better executed for the last couple of years and this clearly seems to be an aping of Apple's recent success with nearly the exact same design but much better executed... as with the Mac Pro page:

Completely unclear why this announcement became an opportunity to celebrate this web design.

Hardly. First thing I thought when I loaded the MacPro page was, "How come page-down doesn't work?" The MacPro page breaks common web navigation idioms. It's as awful as any Flash-based web page.

At least it degrades perfectly with Javascript disabled.

(Which was very necessary as, once I allowed it in NoScript, I couldn't even figure out how to get it to display all the content I saw on the overview when I initially loaded it.)

While it is nothing special. It is a pretty clean page, about the new CEO. The video roll-over effect while simple was quite nice.
