The other thing I most hate is Microsoft arrogance in forcing this down my throat. I am glad that the executives involved with this, including Ballmer, have all left or been shown the door.

Julia Larson-Green still works there. She is one of the ones responsible for the Office "ribbon" which I hate, and which was minimized in the most recent release (yay!). The Wikipedia article also lists her as semi-responsible for Surface.

If you really care about all this executive stuff, Rob Enderle wrote a number of interesting essays about Ballmer.

Microsoft's plan was to use the same OS for everything, or as they say, "one Windows to rule them all." Currently that looks like a bad executive decision, but the jury is still out.
