This change is VERY much needed! Microsoft need to look at every product and idea holistically, vice the stovepipe little islands of the past.

Developers! Developers! Developers!

I can't hear that word now without visualizing that retard's monkey dance. It's his idea of "evangelism".

Now he wants to put the mobile O/S group in with the Windows group instead of with the mobile hardware, where it belongs. It seems he still thinks he can force us to use a single interface on all devices, and he continues to believe that if all their devices use Metro, that this would affect anyone's purchase decision.

The HELL with Ballmer! He's a marketing-major frat boy out of his league and over his head, who reached his Peter Principle threshold the day Gates retired.

At this point, I'm glad the board hasn't come to its senses and fired the buffoon, because the longer Ballmer captains the Titanic, the less influence (power) Microsoft will have over our industry.

Two more years of that idiot, and MS will be the new Compaq.

"activities people value most... designs and creates the next generation of new and "amazing" experiences..."
That value of amazing experience is having the option to "customize", which Windows 8 was lacking by taking away the Start Menu and default boot to Desktop.

Was Ballmer drunk when he wrote that Internal memo?

I stand by what I said in an earlier post, Steve B looks like Uncle Fester's stunt double that or Ming the Merciless's brother that no one talks about.

Unification of systems and design is a brilliant idea. It is why Apple is Apple, now. The flaw is what they are trying to unify around. Windows 8 isn't a poor working OS but it is one no one enjoys using. Making a system environment people find distasteful is no better and potentially worse than fragmentation.

"with maximum return to shareholders,"

I stopped right there. It is more than apparent what the problem is...

Wrong... Apple only exists today because they managed to find a niche that wasn't properly exploited yet and blew it out of the water. Making devices that play music/phone calls for kids is hardly a "system", much less "unifying" anything but a expensive apple desktop machine that nobody buys...

So does this mean that Julie Larson-Green (Metro-UI Girl) is no longer involved with the operating system side of things? Isn't this a good thing? Maybe without her protecting that UI like a mother bear protecting a bear cub, we can finally move past this debacle and truly let people choose to ever see it or not. I have hope.

Does anyone remember several years ago when Microsoft reorganized and split up into all those groups to "better focus" on markets?

This is going to do nothing other than give bullet points on Ballmer's goals met list he gives to the Board of Directors to keep his bonus from totally disappearing.
