Steve Ballmer, Chief Exec. of Microsoft made a timely but surprise appearance at Microsoft BUILD to inform developers that they are taking all steps to reinvent the company.
The reasoning could be subject for debate but most would see this moment in time and space to offer an opportunity for Microsoft to act and become more like Apple under Jobs. To do so theywould focus on design, innovation and development. The window is open.
The opportunity is right in front and this is the perfect time. I am sure that Bill Gates would love to do what Steve Jobs did in his return. He no doubt has monitored all the latest innovations and has ideas what Microsoft should be about.
