Raikes retiring, now who will be the next CEO?

Posted by Brier Dudley

Seriously, I thought Jeff Raikes was the front-runner to replace Steve Ballmer. Maybe he decided he didn't need the brass ring after all.

Stephen Elop, the Juniper Networks COO hired out of the blue to replace Raikes as president of Microsoft Business Division, suggests Microsoft is getting serious about its battle with Adobe.

If you're trying to beat PDF and Flash, why not hire a guy who used to lead Adobe's sales group and run Macromedia?
