    • How is Marissa a "threat" to anyone's job when she hasn't did anything HERE so far to impact revenue in a meaningful way and profits? Yahoo forecasted DOWN for the year afterall. A CEO who hasn't did anything but a hypothetical buyout is worthy of the top job at those companies?hahahahaha I like Marissa but running a $5B company is vastly different then ones with revenue of $250 BILLION and $70 BILLION respectively. She wouldn't even be a regional president in the Ipad division and certainly not a division head at MSFT's Servers division, which I think is one of the 5 with $10B+ in revenues per year. As for Gates, he hasn't been involved in over a decade since he was CEO and almost a decade since he became Chairman Emeritus. His wealth ISN'T even in Microsoft, something like 80-85% has been cashed out. His focus has been his 2 Gates charities which btw. are bigger than Yahoo today. The irony is BOTH of those companies have grown substantially in the last 5yrs whereas Yahoo has gone the other way 30%.
