The Ballmer years was when Product Marketing took over, and well... yeah, that went well... Thats the nicest thing I can say about the "chair throwing" years. You can't lead when Marketing is telling your developers when/how to innovate. And that is when they lost many of their best/brightest. With that said, Nadella's MS actually stands a chance at survival and even to thrive again, but it is sure not going to look anything like the previous versions of MS when he's done.
