Had a feeling it was about his "style" more than anything else. My comment on another thread about "taking the blame" was meant fairly tongue in cheek. I too wonder where/what he'll be doing next as his type of personality needs challenges to be satisfied. Maybe AMD?

Ms will survive -- maybe the new woman will finally sort out the desktop / Metro schizophrenia that is Windows 8 and turn it into a sensible OS - customisable for Tablets / Phones / computers like it should have been in the first place.

He won't go to AMD -- that company is going to be the "Next Kodak" -- couldn't see where the future is going --and failed to deliver to Intel the knockout punch when they had the chance to really "Sock it to them".

AMD is on the slippery slope to Oblivion now -- their CPU's are old hat compared with INTEL and by buying Nvidia just shows how messed up they are -- pretty well any DECENT computer whether a laptop or workstation (and soon any decent tablet) uses INTEL graphics these days --fast, stable and usually WORKS.

AMD probably won't be around in a year or two's time any more --certainly not in its present form.

Perhaps IBM should enter this market again after leaving hardware more than a decade ago.

jimbo you have a good point. IBM has the money and people to get into a new market. They might be able to use someone like Steve Sinofsky to get IBM back into the retail market with a great operating system and other products. It would take a few years to do such a thing. Even if Microsoft fixes the mess called Windows 8 I think there is room for another branded PC user friendly operating system. IBM could do it if they wanted to do it.
