    Should be interesting! IMO, Steve and MS have been been making really great decisions lately! Can't wait for even more!

    I'll assume that statement is just oozing with sarcasm..otherwise I have no idea what to say to you :D

    Ballmer is just trying to take over more control for himself, really. Right now doing that is going to make him look like the captain of the Titanic. MS is dead set on dropping what they are best at and going into the "service" business and trying desperately to stay in mobile, where honestly they aren't really even that wanted, let alone needed. He wants to be surrounded by Yes men.

    Axe Ballmer. First the Windows 8 UI they are now scrambling to change with 8.1. Also the terrible Xbox One restrictions they had, and also just recently reversed.

    Depends on who you ask. Do you think MS's direction that they've taken in the last year or so is good or bad? This report (if accurate) seems to be consistent with what we've seen from them in that time frame.

    bad imo windows phone is basically where metro started.. i hate metro and if this happens expect more cloud based only things and much more metro designs. i have been told a bit of inside info and while i cant post it i can say the mess is just that a mess. and it doesnt look good for many at ms..... or us for the future if things go this way.

    I like Windows Phone but it really doesn't scale beyond a phone. I guess we'll see what Windows 8.2 or 9 or whatever brings.
