    Steve Ballmer today cut his remaining official tie with the company he ran for 14 years, resigning as a member of Microsoft's board of directors.

    The announcement, which closes a big chapter in Microsoft's history, was expected. In February, Ballmer stepped down as CEO in favor of Satya Nadella. Since then, he has kept a low profile -- his biggest news being his $2 billion purchase of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.

    Indeed, Ballmer referenced his new career as basketball mogul in what was framed as a "Dear Satya" letter.

    I think Ballmer's resignation from the board of directors is a good move and will help MS to move forward.

    Realistically, things could only get better. I mean, they tried their grand experiment, gauged the reaction, seen those responsible for the disaster depart the company, surely that bodes well for the future....

    Don't count on it. The new CEO was formerly in charge of cloud development.

    How does cloud computing not bode well for the future? I admit, I prefer to have my own physical storage options on hand, however cloud computing has proven spectacular for business, and for the most part are sold on it. Microsoft is not the sole party moving to the cloud or even subscription based software. Many other vendors are along for the ride.

    Not everyone has affordable wideband internet access, assuming they have access to it at all. Subscription based software is more expensive in the long run.
