I got a hold of the job description:

We need new CEO, current one is going the way of the Dodo.
You need to be: - not Bill Gates - bald (preferrably)

I have an open mind and no preconceptions. His actions will speak for him. My first impression, he has the qualifications, experience and the presence.

 Interesting. You're afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic.

He's a cricket nut - so we'll have a MS CEO who knows who NZ is.

That might be it. Bill Gates is leaving his role as Chairman of the Board (still on the board as Founder though) to spend time as technology advisor.

Microsoft is going to push tech to the limits now.

I think Satya is a good fit for the company. They also made some changes to the board as well.

I trying to decide if your tongue is in your cheek, and will take comment at face value.... Bill may not be a Steve Jobs, but he's still a very smart man and gets technology very well - Lets just hope he doesn't try to do UX/UI design and instead focuses on what he does best: think and drive.
