Summary: Steve Ballmer unrest and the Microsoft spy are just few among many items we’ll cover this/next week
DUE to a variety of reasons (mainly vacation), we have fallen behind Microsoft news for 4 weeks. In the coming days we will make up for it by catching up with news as old as 4 weeks. We will try to avoid repetition and the goal is to cover all ground which needs to be covered. We finally caught up with GNU/Linux news a week ago and with Free/open source news a few days ago.
On the subject of Steve Ballmer we wrote in recent posts such as:
- Steve Ballmer at Risk of Being Thrown Out, Bill Gates Still Makes the News Due to Fraud
- Microsoft’s #1 Cash Cow Doesn’t Sell Well Anymore, Steve Ballmer Pressured to Leave
Ballmer has been pushed out by some angry investors for quite some time (last year even, based on investors who contacted us). Here is some new coverage of interest:
To quote: “But after 30 years, some of Ballmer’s fellow execs are rising against him, says Peter Lauria at the Daily Beast, finding him to be the biggest misfit in a company of misfits.”
A Redmond, Wash., man who was deported to his native Russia on Tuesday as part of an investigation into a large spy ring didn’t compromise company security in the nine months he worked for Microsoft as an entry-level software tester, a Microsoft spokesman said Wednesday.
It’s a little out of date, but the next few posts will cover areas we have not explored yet. █
