Color me very disappointed as Nadella as the pick if true - I truly believe Microsoft needs an outsider - the selection of an insider - even a "newer one" is disappointing.

In general I agree. However, since this is an individual and not a statistical average, it could turn out to be an excellent choice. I guess we will have to wait and see.


I don't know about Nadella, but if you have read Jim Collins' books (Good to Great, Built to Last), you will find that, in general, the really great companies are lead by a succession of insiders. Most "outsiders" don't do nearly as well. Again, any single instance could go either way, but in general, I'd prefer a talented insider.
