    Nadella's first day as CEO is today, February 4. Current CEO Steve Ballmer is out, effective immediately.

    The choice of Nadella is somewhat surprising, and in other ways, not.

    Nadella -- believed to have been, all along, one of a small handful of alleged internal candidates for the Microsoft CEO job -- has been at the company for 22 years. As of 2011, he ran Microsoft's lucrative server and tools businesses. His official title, as of the July 2013 "One Microsoft" reorg, became Executive Vice President of Cloud and Enterprise.

    Given Microsoft is remaking itself as a devices and services company, it's not too crazy that Microsoft's selection committee would choose a "cloud guy" to be the next CEO. The fact that the majority of Microsoft's revenues and profits come from enterprise software also make Nadella -- who also heads up the company's enterprise software businesses -- a seeming shoo-in.
    Read the rest here.

    The financial news writers are saying, "Microsoft rises on CEO news". And all is well with the world!!!

    I don't know; the guy scares me. He was head of cloud development and stated himself he frequently started projects and never finished them.

    True.. and most CEO's are just into the "vision" thing anyway. But I hope he sets a correct course for the future of MS.

    Good luck on the golf game, Lee. Just keep swinging.

    CEO's don't have to finish projects, that's what they have employees for. Lets just hope his ideas are more in line with what we want and he keeps his eye on what his employees are coming up with. Hopefully, he remembers the Windows 7 slogan. "Windows, your way", and the advertising motto, "I'm a PC, and Windows 7 was my idea".
