Will Ballmer Leave Before Mission Accomplished?
I am going to speculate that Steve Ballmer won't leave the praise and the credit for the upcoming CEO, therefore he is going to speed the process on pushing the following plans before leaving:
1. Unify Platforms (Windows, WP and Xbox One).
2. Fully Skype Integration in all devices (Windows, WP and Xbox One).
3. Releasing 2nd generation of Surface Pro and RT with new accessories.
4. WP 8.1.
5. Start Screen innovation.
6. WP killer hardware.
7. Common apps platform with windows.
8. Office metro apps.
9. New Windows 8.1 devices.
So I will expect any of the above release sooner than later as planned earlier
