Screen Shot 2013-09-16 at 17.17.57I read in our of our reader comments that Business Insider had suggested that Finnish Mårten Mickos, maybe a good candidate for the next CEO of Microsoft.

If we’re looking at the right story, there are some other points of note in what they call bar stool gossip

  • Stephen Elop is still most likely candidate
  • Gates is deeply involved in the CEO search
  • Gates will come back as a very active chairman and will want a CEO who is comfortable with Gates guiding the vision for the company.
  • Gates wants someone with Public Company experience
  • Hence Elop is at the top
  • An idea that MS should spin off the consumer business and put someone like MÃ¥rten Mickos in charge.
