From an interview with Steve Ballmer in this morning’s Journal:
You can’t replace Bill Gates, but I think the future of the company is brighter looking forward even than looking back. You never can go through the teenage years of being a company again in the sense of growing from nothing to something, but I think we can go from something very good to something great.
When did China get great? China didn’t get great under Mao Zedong. China got great under — in the recent years — probably got great under Deng Xiaoping.
And you thought Apple was the personal-computing revolutionary! If BillG was wearing the Mao jacket, then did that make Paul Allen Lin Biao? If Steve = Deng, does that make Ray Ozzie Hu Yaobang — and is he in danger of being purged?
What was Ballmer thinking?
