Excerpt from a wide-ranging interview
"The conversation then switched to new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and whether this is something the Windows maker should be focusing on, and how Gates feels the new man in charge is doing in his job. Although Gates stated that he's "very happy with what he's doing," curiously he went on to say that he believes the company needs to make Microsoft Office dramatically better. We're not sure exactly what that means, but Gates was very animated about it, and he's apparently making sure the company heeds this advice.
'Certainly, Microsoft should do as well or better, but of all the things Microsoft needs to do in terms of making people more productive in their work, helping them communicate in new ways. It's a long list of opportunities Microsoft has to innovate, and taking Office and making it dramatically better would be really high on the list, that's the kind of thing that I'm trying to make sure they move fast on. I'm very happy with what he's doing. I see a new sense of energy. There's a lot of opportunity there. Some things the company isn't the leader on, and he sees he needs to change that.'"Gates talks Apple Pay, Bitcoin, Nadella and how Office needs to be dramatically better - Neowin
