    We found this very interesting read over on BGR and thought it was worth sharing. After checking it out, come back and sound off in the thread what you think of Stephen Elop potentially taking over Microsoft.

    I can't help but get the feeling that Microsoft is in for another decade or so filled with management power struggles, departmental infighting, and generally bad decision making as a result, if the board sticks with an MS "insider."

    With all the attempts by Steve Ballmer recently to change the culture at Microsoft, it would be a shame if the company retreated back to the (executive) mindset that it's still the 90's. I think Ballmer figured things out about Microsoft's place in the new world order of mobile, but it was too late to save his job.

    Seems like fresh blood is needed at the top, and in the boardroom if MS really is to change its culture. The last thing MS needs, imho, is an atmosphere of competition among its divisions, and this story sounds like MS executives are preparing for warfare between cliques. That can't be good. I wonder who the rank and file at Redmond are hoping to see as the new boss.

    This is why I really hope that they bring in Alan Mulally.
