Heard the same, but Microsoft's biggest problem was and still is Ballmer. Rarely seen a more inept CEO. With Sinofsky out there is nobody left who can take the blame for shoddy and overpriced product.

However if rumors are to believed, he was an abrasive individual and in fact was NOT going to be considered for the job. The stories suggest he threatened to quit if Balmer didn't name him heir apparent, and Balmer called him on the bluff.

Oh to be a fly on the walls of Redmond
