Without much warning or fanfare (rumors notwithstanding), Microsoft this morning announced that Satya Nadella will replace Steve Ballmer as its new CEO - effective immediately. But that's not all. Founder Bill Gates is stepping down from his role as Chairman and will be "substantially increase time" at the company as a technology adviser.
