Microsoft Names New CEO

Microsoft has named  the new CEO. Nadella is the third CEO of Microsoft. He’s been with the company since 1992 and has been running the company’s enterprise and cloud divisions.

“Our industry does not respect tradition – it only respects innovation,” Nadella said. “The opportunity ahead for Microsoft is vast, but to seize it, we must move faster, focus and continue to transform. I see a big part of my job as accelerating our ability to bring innovative products to our customers more quickly.”

He replaces Steve Ballmer who has faced criticism over the less than stellar launch of Windows 8 and the company’s struggles to become a player in the tablet and phone market.  The company also replaced Chairman Bill Gates with John Thompson. Gates will now be known as the Founder and Technology Advisor.

XP’s Share of Market Actually Grows

Even with the end of security support for Windows XP coming in April, the operating system actually managed to grow its share of the operating system market in January, adding a .25% jump in users to put XP on 29.2% of all computers around the world. XP is still on a third of all Windows PCs.

Adobe Issues Critical Flash Player Update

Microsoft has addressed the issue with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 and 11 updates. You can go here to get the latest version of Flash.
