Microsoft Memo: The baton has been pasted to a new generation of Microsoftians November 10, 2005

Posted by John in Technology.

The Microsoft 2005 Memo is …. ” the sound of a baton – a very heavy baton – being passed.”   – Well said by Nicholas Carr in his blog post

This is Gates last stand – he’s 50 and chillin but has one last fight in him.  Gates will conceive the plan, Oz will orchestrate it, and Baller will sell it.

The Microsoft army is forming – Google better bunker in good.
