Who will be the next to lead Microsoft?
The world’s biggest software company, Microsoft Corporation, had only two CEOs in its 38-year history – Ballmer and co-founder Bill Gates. Now time for a change. Mr. Ballmer, himself, posted a letter to it’s employees saying that he’ll be retiring in the next 12 months. The following is a list of tech executives that Microsoft might consider. I listed it myself.

The former head of the Windows unit was widely tipped as a potential Microsoft CEO until his sudden departure in November just after launching Windows 8. He has a good vision & passionate about the products. His reputation has taken a hit since then with the dismal sales of the Surface tablet he launched and the lukewarm reception of Windows 8.

Seriously, I’ll be the happiest man if the co-founder of Microsoft, still Chairman, the richest of the world, make a come back. He still has the ability to lead Microsoft for a better future. His direction can give Microsoft a boost & since Steve Jobs had gone, he can alone play the GAME. The game is crowded but it’ll take time to him to cope up. But he has focused his day-to-day efforts on philanthropy since 2008 when he vacated his office on campus. People close to him say he is not considering a return to the CEO position.

I know this ain’t gonna happen. But if Microsoft brings back the former Apple Executive of iOS, they can still have some boost in their company. He has really well done making iOS what is iOS today. Just a simple mistake of Apple Maps doesn’t prove him unworthy. Still he can do some “MAGIC” in Microsoft & can give Microsoft the much needed modernization it needs.
