Microsoft got a new CEO the other week, the third in their history, a fellow named Satya Nadella, who previously had been in charge of their cloud division.
A lot of analysis of Microsoft tends to be snarky, generally looking at the company as an old, out of touch dinosaur monolith, rather than a hugely successful industry-leading company -- sometimes slower to react than it should, sometimes not as innovative as it could be, but far more vibrant than it is often given credit for.

Nothing snarky, but insightful comments about taking what Microsoft has and getting the most out of it -- and (most importantly) why they should do so: trimming down its number of operating system, cutting through bureaucracy to move faster, pricing and more.

Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
