Keep Balmer at the helm and this ship is headed to the depths of the ocean. The captain and his
crew are caught in the successes of yesteryear and have lost touch with reality. They have missed a whole generation now with their stumbling and fumbling of the ball. People are fed up with their licensing strangle hold on customers and are switching out of these agreements. The cash cow is
slowly being put out to pasture.
MSFt serves the needs of 90% of all computers inthe world, and much of our human society advances depend on computers. Ask anyone who has computers and many opther things - what he or she will keep if he or she had to have one thing, i am pretyt sure he or she will say, I want my computer!!!!
MSft advances each and every year, along with each human imporvments. MSFt will unify all comuter devices from desktops to leptops , to tablets , then to martphones and X-boxes. Productivity across all devices is the way to go over the medium and long term.
