Yep, "trust the system" is just blind faith for most of us.

Not very swift, is he?

Wonder what he is like as a manager and a decision-maker. Salary and gender issues aside for the moment, we will either watch him succeed at running MSFT, or fail misreably. He probably doesn't see around corners. Just a guess. I could be wrong.

Re: Talk about mixed messages
Nadella's comment was telling. "Trust the system" only works if the system is already set up in your favor.

Re: Pending Review
Nobody respects an apologizer.  Now he has no supporters.

Talk about mixed messages
Nadella really butchered this. His switch from "have faith that the system will give you a raise as you go along" to "if you think you deserve a raise, just ask for it" is a total 180. His outright apology helps, but still ... ugh.

Resign
This has damaged the corporate image for Microsoft and the industry. Everyday that he remains running the company is another day that corporate America accepts what he did as routine business practices and continues on. If he resigned it would help boast their image and bottom line. If he stays, it will tarish the reputation for generations to come and further hurt the reputation of windows.

How about this. If my company uses their software, does that mean my company supports their ideals? Cause that is bad for my business.
