Muglia Left After a Dispute With Ballmer on Cloud Computing?

Posted by Bob Warfield on January 11, 2011

The WSJ just reported this fascinating story.  Apparently the two have had a rocky history. 

I wonder which way Ballmer wanted to go?  More or less investment in Cloud Computing?

If less, there will be more trouble ahead for Microsoft.  If more, it was probably the right thing to replace Muglia.


By all accounts it looks like Ballmer wanted more investment in the Cloud.  Good call!
