Who do you want to replace Ballmer

I personally think that Julie will help MS get in better shape. I believe that if she becomes CEO, Microsoft will be 10x more popular.

She isnt the "PINK EVERYWHURRR" type of girl so there wont be negative effects to the male userbase.

 

What about you, who do you want and why?

Mark Shuttleworth, because the solution is clearly designing another new UI 95% of the world won't be familiar with, with close buttons and taskbars on some other random side of the screen.

Steve Wozniak is brilliant like Bill Gates, he would be a good choice or not

Dushmany, just for kicks.

And for the fact that I don't and can't have a serious opinion on the matter.

You know he might not be a bad choice actually....  after all I thought he said that he likes Windows Phones.... 

But really you might think about this guy

Just kidding - though he would be a welcome change from the "developers" guy

I'm surprised no one mentioned Sinofsky and Forstall. 

My pick would be either Satya Nadella or Tami Reller.

If Simon became CEO, you'd see even more of those dancing ads for the Surface.

In a way I wish they would pick Ray Ozzie.

It would never be Sinofsky.

I wish Jim Allchin still worked at Microsoft; he'd make a wonderful CEO, and could again be the company's "great white hope". He has personality, technical expertise, and experience.

""If you're going to kill someone there isn't much reason to get all worked up about it and angry - you just pull the trigger. Angry discussions beforehand are a waste of time. We need to smile at Novell while we pull the trigger." Allchin, 1993

"I continue to see a healthy PC market, very healthy. The machines will continue to morph; you'll see smaller machines that have more capability."
- Allchin, 2006

"
One day, he got a long distance call from a user whose system had crashed in the middle of saving some important work. Jim was able to repair the damage over the phone, getting the user to toggle in disk I/O instructions at the front panel, repairing system tables in hex, reading register contents back over the phone."

I like Julie a lot, but her last on stage appearance, has me saying she won't. She was quite nervous, and unsteady, for some reason.

How would we be able to tell any difference than what we have now? :P
