Former CEO Steve Ballmer on Wednesday called out Microsoft on finance reporting and its app strategy for Windows Phone. CEO Satya Nadella this summer laid out his vision for the company in an open letter to employees. It included a Windows 10 strategy founded on universal apps, software that could be scaled to Xbox One, Window Phones, tablets and desktops. That's the wrong way to go -- Windows Phone needs to support Android apps, Ballmer asserted during Microsoft's annual shareholder's meeting.

ONe of the reasons that I won't touch Micro$lop phones is that I want to be together in apps with my friends and family.

I don't need an all or nothing strategy that makes money for M$ and screws me.

So I have an android phone and am now using Linux Ubuntu on one of my laptops to learn it to get away from Windows. So far so good.
