I'm very excited about Nadella being appointed CEO. I think he will bring an engineer's perspective to the role rather than a business perspective and that is what MS needs. I read his letter to the troops and it sounded exciting. If MS is to stay relevant in the future it's going to have to continue to make daring changes and becoming a goods and services company is one such move. More cloud computing... more mobile computing... better use of the Nokia acquisition (i.e. maps and services). I honestly think exciting times lie ahead for MS.
