Unfortunately, before we were able to let David know that a CEO was already chosen, he sent out the following letter to what he thought were his new employees at Microsoft: Hello everyone. My name is David Pierce and I am your new boss. I don't want to change too many things around the office, but I thought I would use this moment to announce some exciting news. First off, everyone must call me by my birth name, Chuck Bucklenuck. Secondly, Casual Fridays will now be limited to only hawaiian shirts. Finally, I will be changing the name of our company to 'Macrosoft.' I just want to try new things, ok? Anywho, thanks again for giving me this high paying job!
