    When Satya Nadella became Microsoft's CEO, the company has been doing extremely well, pushing out new technologies and attracting a lot of investors. And while many today say that Satya Nadella saved Microsoft, others suggest that the company didn't need any saving at all. So which is it?

                        I smell jealousy and racist overtones here. Steve Ballmer may have started many things in Microsoft but Satya Nadela is the one who worked created lead and made Azure into what it is today steering Microsoft away from a losing idea towards making it into a winning bet again.

                        It is because of people like Satya Nadela, who behind the scenes help develop awesome technologies that Bill Gates lead Microsoft into a huge enterprise. And this pity party you have going on for Steve Ballmer is frankly condescending to him most. He has his own wins. In the era of Apple dominance, he still moved the Microsoft boat keeping it growing and profitable. He allowed multiple things as experiments. He was good too for the company. He allowed Microsoft to stop for a moment and understand what they would like to do in future.

                        Satya Nadela is another class of leadership in Microsoft. He represents the 2nd generation leadership of Microsoft. While he was positioned with the company on the foundations laid by the founding member team of Microsoft the company had to move ahead into a new era built on the name but not necessarily on things Bill or Steve were doing instead carve a new path for the company. Build on the strengths of ideas which were unexplored before.

                        Bill worked as an owner of Microsoft, Steve as one who is among the initial team which made the company into a great company but Satya came from a different place. He was a new recruit a fresher, to say the least. Bill Gates was a big man. Satya exemplifies the ethos of Microsoft and it shows in a way the success of the company as allows an environment for it's new hires to aspire and grow into leadership positions and lead the company like Mircosoft from the front. Satya is mindful of the legacy he has inherited but he isn't limited by it or tied to it.

                        For Satya knows the past was glorious but the future is a new possibility and it is that which is more meaningful & relevant right now.

                                                        I guess in a way Ballmer saw the future, but the timing of his setups were off so it didn't succeed. So the business division was just waiting for the right time to apply when all the cloud tech from google starting kicking in.

                                                          When people point to stock market prices fo MSFT as an indicator they miss the point the a lot of it depends on external forces. Even though There was dot-com bust and in 2008, a recession requiring a big government bailout. So while Apple was kicking-ass in hardware business (MSFT never had major hardware business to begin with). Sometimes shareholders expectations make companies like MSFT to chase remotely related innovations done by competitors. MSFT had no business launching Zune or buying Nokia, but it did all of that so that shareholders don't write off the entire company - which frankly many did. So if you run a business, don't be blinded and pushed into doing the same stuff your competitor is doing very well - find your niche and make it big.

Plus, the devs inside are pushing for OSS that just needs support from the higher ups.
