It's my most favorite time of the year: Friday the 23rd is the annual Microsoft Company Meeting! I pull up my sleeves and thrust out my arms out wide and say, "Shove in the Kool-Aid IVs to the left and to the right and keep it flowing!
It is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Apple has been soaring with its excellent device results, blowing Microsoft away and cannibalizing our Windows powered device market.
The Microsoft stock is horribly flat and there are calls all-around for Ballmer to be replaced. Now, several things are in play: Jobs has stepped down due to his health reasons, WP Mango is reaching release with Nokia devices to begin their flow, and Windows 8 has demonstrated a reboot to the Windows experience and development platform.
With Windows 8, Microsoft has emerged with the talking points that the company is being re-imagined. Didn't see that coming. One thing I'd love to see SteveSi do: I'm not expecting him to, but if he did, I'd relish having my Spock-meets-Spartan view of him rebooted.
Turner will do the big picture for us. I like this comment regarding one point of view of how things are going for Microsoft: There are certainly some issues at MSFT but some of the people that post in this blog are just over the top in their pessimism and whining.
If you don't think so, then you don't really understand the change Say what you will about Ballmer, there are some senior execs at MSFT that are truly outstanding. The Nokia deal only allows MSFT some hope at playing catch-up at this point Employees will soon have to pay a contribution and deductibles for health care thank you very much ObamaCare and the Cadillac Tax for bringing that to us Although there are talented people still there, a lot of talented folks have left MSFT senior leadership in the past 18 months or so - Liddell, Elop, Muglia, Bach, etc, etc.
Although Elop was instrumental in getting the Nokia deal up and going The ugly: Let that sink in a moment While MSFT has plenty of other viable businesses, none is as profitable nor as core strategically as Windows.
Windows was once an impenetrable fortress, but in the past year, AAPL has penetrated it with a single product launch.
MSFT is destined to play catch-up in slates, and it sounds like nothing serious is coming out until Windows 8 in another 12 to 15 months maybe MSFT is still very strong in the enterprise but to the consumer, MSFT seems completely dead.
And their dominance is even greater internationally OSD as an org continues to bleed money and will continue to do so for at least another couple of years There it is, from a high-performing L63 employee in a broad-based business role, trying to lay things out in a truly fair and balanced manner.
Take it or leave it. I'm glad to see The Cloud in the somebody's Win column. When it comes to the Company Meeting, I personally am dreading anything that can be in the least bit tangled up with Two things lost my respect to this force-fed-bubble-gum-on-my-shoe initiative: That will at least make it palatable How about the rest?
Give me a 'Whoo? Pour yourself a three fingers of bourbon and keep the bottle handy and go through all the comments in the Mini-Microsoft Microsoft Annual Review post.

I look at this system and, stepping back, it makes sense if you're preparing to do some major organizational slimming over, say, a three year period. For instance, if SteveB where going to leave, I imagine before he goes he would cut back huge parts of Microsoft versus leaving that task to the new CEO, who might make radically bad cut-back decisions from the former CEO's point of view.Find great deals on eBay for mini-q.
