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.

A great new leader, Gates coming back for real product work, and all the idiots who got us here flushed the hell out.

This is excellent news and I am optimistic about Microsoft for the first time in 10 years. MSFT for me goes from "sell" to "buy" after the last year.

I wouldn't be so quick to start buying their stock. The incoming CEO may prove to be even worse than Ballmer. Or they could pull an Elop. The point being wait and see what happens before wasting your money.

At least, buying their products is not a waste. It's just a rip-off since they makes you buy them again and again for little incremental added value.

But still, Windows (2000/XP/7) is quite good IMHO.

Satya has a proven track record running a division in MS that has higher revenues than most companies.

He's one of few (another being Elop) who could actually pull the job off.

This is the kind of wonderful stuff Gates did when he was more involved.

That email is awesome, and Bill Gates was in control during the period when Microsoft actually made new good things.
