Of course these rumors will surface once again as it did several years ago. This time, don't be too sure it won't happen with Nadella and Narayen. It is all about mobile and cloud. Msft. can use 50% cash and 50% stock for $45 Billion.
ok let me get this straight.
1) this rumor is from 2010 according to an internet search.
2) New MSFT ceo is indian, ADBE ceo is indian.
3) first move of new ceo would be to pay $45 billion for a company earning 500m per year and poor forecast. ok. sure. Why not pay $45 billion for 500m earnings ?
4) your greed will never be satisfied, ever.
