, romanovskis, and
"Ballmer will retire within the year after a successor is found, according to a Microsoft statement on Friday morning." -- ok, clown to depart, now when rest of circus will be disbanded?
I won't mind disbanding MS if MS Research stayed intact; a bunch of pretty brilliant projects are being done there. (Much the same as AT&T and Bell Labs years ago.)
, are you going to recommend Stephen Elop as a replacement?:)
FAHT BAHSTAHRT ON AH BEIK!
I'd recommend him to join Steve in a year/
if they sold out assets, put money into fund/trust, finance from that fund research centre "as is" _and_ burn Microsoft labels in public -- I don't mind ;)
keep you fingers crossed, you might be actually doing historical guess ;)
12 months is enough to run both MS and Nokia into the ground
in a way, that would be nice - just imagine how big will be free space for new businesses after they both go bite dust! I also want to see herds of current CIOs go kill themselves against wall because of deep dependency on MS products and even larger _volumes_ of office plankton being dismissed into nowhere because their MS office skills don't make any value anymore :) isn't it exciting, eh? better than nuclear war ;)
