Microsoft scores against Android by relinquishing control of Windows

Nadella is reinventing Microsoft's mobile offerings. He has nothing to lose, because the company's approach to mobile under Ballmer treated mobile like the desktop wasn't working. This is a bold move, and if he keeps his word to innovate at a rapid pace, Nadella and Microsoft could become a mobile contender instead of an also-ran. It's a big change in attitude - from trying to control mobile to letting go and helping mobile grow.
