It seemed like Microsoft was running in the desert for several years. “I want and I can’t” was the end of Steve Ballmer’s platform at the helm of Microsoft. Too ambitious projects that failed and a competition that seemed to leave Microsoft further and further behind, Windows 8, Windows Phone, the first Microsoft Edge… Defeat after defeat raised alarm bells.
Microsoft’s resurgence under Nadella
Everything changed with the arrival of Satya Nadella at the head of the company. He was emphatic when it came to eliminating Windows Phone (a pool of tickets that offered no profit), bet heavily on Xbox and Game Pass, closed the Windows 8 phase with Windows 10, and in the crown focused his efforts on the jewel. : Blue.
