Core information:

This is the only real answer of mine to the question of Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer Retiring: Who’s Next? [Bloomberg YouTube channel, Aug 23, 2013]

Bloomberg’s Betty Liu and senior markets correspondent Julie Hyman report that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has announced he will retire within the next 12 months.

As an ex Softie doing a full .NET adoption program for Hungarian developers between 2000 and 2008 and then following Microsoft woes via blogs Beyond Win32: “Win32 utáni” történések a világban (in Hungarian) [May 2008. – March 2011] and Experiencing the Cloud [June 2010 …] I could not imagine any other way out of Microsoft’s troubled situation today than a spin-off solely dedicated to conquerring the ARM client space independently of the current Microsoft organisation completely bound to the survival of the already outdated Wintel model.

Particularly I don’t believe at all in the possibility of a true success of How the device play will unfold in the new Microsoft organization? [July 14, 2013] as was introduced in the latest reorg under the “One Microsoft” concept.

On the other hand I am absolutely confident in the success of an ARM-focussed spin-off as the only solution to save Microsoft in the crucial next 3-years period as such spin-off should only exploit the extraordinary advantages of current Microsoft as described in Microsoft partners empowered with ‘cloud first’, high-value and next-gen experiences for big data, enterprise social, and mobility on wide variety of Windows devices and Windows Server + Windows Azure + Visual Studio as the platform [July 10, 2013]. Moreover there is an excellent candidate to lead such a spin-off even internally. He is Scott Guthrie with an excellent track record of succeeding in impossible undertakings along his relatively short career, as described in his LinkeIn profile:

Reasons for all that, especially regarding why the next 3 years will be crucial for Microsoft, have already been extensively given in my posts that came out BEFORE the announcement of Steve Ballmer retirement:
