Former Microsoft executive says CEO Ballmer culls internal rivals to retain power

Its crazy how Microsoft had a good working mobile operating system years before Apple and Google developed their own and yet have such a small slice of that market now and largely cling to a hardware manufacturer who also threw away their market dominance.

Ballmer is an idiot and should have been gone the moment Gates stepped down. His "vision" is as about as near sighted as you get.

Agree. With Ballmer at the helm. MS will continue to be reactive and not proactive.
