Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer have to go

Microsoft is in trouble. It’s not going to collapse. However, it’s a fairly well accepted fact they’re having trouble. Windows 8 and this story epitomizes this fact. I would say though this had little to do with Bill Gates except in that he kept Steve Ballmer in his position for years long after the board wanted him gone.

So today, we have a Microsoft, of all things, having trouble, hiring a CEO. It looks like this challenge might be ending. However, the rumour is that Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer will be removed by the board from their positions. This can only be a good thing and it will allow the new man to do what he thinks is necessary to change things at the once might Microsoft.

This will be a fascinating story to follow; far more fascinating than just Microsoft looking for a new CEO.
