Is the tech. giant Microsoft Inc.'s long search for a new, reliable and appropriate CEO about to end?

A recent Bloomberg report says that the company's board is now preparing to name Mr. Satya Nadella as the Microsoft Inc.'s next CEO. It also says that the board might decide to replace Bill Gates as the chairman of the company.

If Mr. Nadella, who is now in charge of the cloud computing department, is about to become the only third CEO in the Microsoft Inc.'s 38-year long history, the company is going to put in some charge, the sort of brainy technologist who is closer to the Gates mold than the hard-charging salesman which is Mr. Steve Ballmer.

Mr. Nadella is now in charge of the organization responsible for building Microsoft's latest Cloud OS, which does power the Office 365, the Bing, SkyDrive, the Xbox Live, Skype, Dynamics, and the enterprises around the world. The report, which is quoting "people briefed on the process," has said that Mr. John Thompson, who is Microsoft's lead independent director, is now being considered as a possible chairman candidate to replace Mr. Bill Gates.

The famous tech site CNET has reported on last Wednesday rumblings that a decision might come down sometime within the next couple of weeks. But the search to find the Microsoft Inc.'s next boss has now become the tech equivalent of "Waiting for the Gadot." Mr. Nadella has also figured in some rumors as a possible candidate for several months.
