Expect to see a lot of this talk in the coming months. It's a terrible idea, though. Elop didn't just destroy billions in shareholder value while running Nokia. He also made strategic decisions that crippled the company's ability to compete against Apple and Samsung. Nokia crossed the Rubicon when it chose to build itself around Windows Phone, rather than Android or an internally developed OS. That's on Elop.
What part of that sounds like the kind of guy Microsoft needs at the top at this, perhaps the most crucial juncture in the its history?
