What has changed the most at Microsoft since you joined? It definitely seems like a new company these days.


It is but it didn't happen overnight. Lots happened and lots of internal pushing, but I'd say:

  • Software as a Service, Office 365, etc. Office isn't $499 any more, it's $5 a month.
  • Azure - Microsoft will run your for loop (whatever language you like!) in the cloud for pennies
  • Mobile - MSFT lost with Windows Mobile so they instead made THE BEST mobile apps. Office on iPad is AMAZING.

All this and more.
