“I will focus on product work mostly, make sure we pick ambitious scenarios and that we have a strong architecture to deliver on them. I encourage good work (hopefully),” he wrote.
His main areas of focus will be on connected devices and well-integrated software.
“I am excited about how the cloud and new devices can help us communicate and collaborate in new ways. The OS won’t just be on one device and the information won’t just be files — it will be your history including being able to review memories of things like kids growing up. I was thrilled Satya asked me to pitch in to make sure Microsoft is ambitious with its innovation. Even in Office there is a lot more than can be done.” he expressed about his new role.
He added that “We need to have trust in the way information is protected and gathered. There is a role for the government to try and stop crime and terrorism but it will have to be more open. I do think terrorism with biological or nuclear weapons is something we want to minimize the chance of.”
Bill Gates has been doing remarkable jobs and took beneficial decisions for Microsoft since decades and hope that he does continue the same pace with Microsoft.
