» ‘Does Microsoft need a turnaround expert?’

Watts Martin makes the case for Stephen Elop as Microsoft’s next CEO.

…Elop understands the importance of user experience. Bill Gates is a brilliant guy but he never had any interest in being a tastemaker, and on a good day Steve Ballmer has the taste of a Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco.

I don’t know who would be a good pick. Elop does seem better than a lot of the other choices, but there are so many ways Microsoft could screw this up that I continue to find it baffling that Microsoft investors merrily continue to tick the stock up.

Nothing but blue skies and kittens!
