New Microsoft CEO..

Various sources are reporting that 2 potential candidates for the CEO position are considering shutting down Bing and and the XBox divisions.

I realize they are both currently loss making, but long term they will huge profit centres.

Any potential CEO whose only looking at boosting numbers short-term should only be considered short-term.

Microsoft need a engineer in the CEO role, someone who understands technology and can see where things are headed. The One Microsoft strategy has barely begun (a few years late) and already CEO candidates are looking to undermine it rather than bring the various divisions into a 'the sum is greater than the parts' enviroment.
