    Microsoft stock is the worst performing stock with a market cap of over 200 billion!

    Ridiculous that they can't find good management! Bill Gates needs to find a new CEO that relates to the youth!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Why would "relat[ing] to the youth" be the criterion?

      The CEO needs a deep understanding of the art of computing and how people in general relate to it. Given that, he/she could make sound judgments about what is a good product that people will want. Given that, a little company run by Steve Jobs was able to run circles around Microsoft, beginning in a state of near-bankruptcy, despite all the supposed advantages Microsoft had.

      Arguably Microsoft's "advantages" are actually millstones hung around its neck, and the future belongs to those who can start from scratch today with no baggage at all.
