Satya Nadella named Microsoft CEO as Bill Gates steps down as chairman

Microsoft settled on a veteran insider as its replacement for long-time CEO Steve Ballmer on Tuesday, ending a five-month search with a choice some analysts called a “safe pick” for the software behemoth.

India-born Satya Nadella, 46, head of the company’s cloud computing division and enterprise business, was appointed after a team of head-hunters concluded a five-month search that included some of the most world’s most famous executives.

Hopefully this new move for tech giant Microsoft will be a welcome move back on track as Microsoft is currently lagging behind the competition with smartphones and tablet pc’s.

And Microsoft still working on the home based pc’s and laptops.
