Today, Microsoft confirmed the appointment of Satya Nadella as the company's 3rd CEO. Steve Clayton of Microsoft takes a minute to interview Satya about his life, aspirations, and the future of Microsoft. 

What direction the company actually takes with Nadella at the helm remains to be seen, but in all honesty, with Microsoft's struggles over the last 8 years, he can't drag the company down much further. Nadella is in the unique position to take the once megalithic company and bring it back to greatness. He seems more grounded, rational and visionary than Ballmer, and I see promise. Satya accomplished amazing things with Enterprise and Cloud based services, specifically Office 365 and Server 2012, and he seems poised to bring a great deal of experience and perspective to the position. We will be keeping a watchful eye on the future...
