    I'm sure that Mr. Ballmer won't stay retired long. Hmmm.... wonder if Ubuntu's Unity team will snatch him up?

    Maybe he'll go work for Apple.
    I read somewhere yesterday that the bookies have started placing odds on who will take over.
    and Apple CEO Tim Cook had something like 100 to 1 odds.

    I would like to see a CEO swap go down.

    Decline of Digital Equipment offers lessons for Microsoft
    While many analysts have speculated that even if Microsoft fails in its volte-face or stumbles with its CEO choice, it could see years of impressive revenue while it also declines in importance, DeLisi drew on his experience at DEC to wonder if it would be otherwise.

    ^ riding on the back seat and still raking in the dough. that's a strategy too... for now
    riding shotgun wasn't a very pleasant ride; cutting edge high risk hard/software just isn't their game, it seems.
    sure they did okay, but "okay" just doesn't cut it.

    the iPhone5 has shown up on the horizon, and shops are purging their old models announcing ridiculous discounts. say what you want about Apple and their products, but there's a company riding shotgun, and loving it.
    It's a GIANT MUSHROOM... MAYBE IT'S FRIENDLY!
