It's on-again, off-again for potential CEO candidates at Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT). The latest apple of Microsoft's eye is the suave Swedish sophisticate Hans Vestberg, CEO of Ericcson (NASDAQ:ERIC). With a reputation for being able to telecommunicate with his partners, he appears to be a good catch. One big obstacle remains though: Microsoft's other half needs to get a quickie divorce in Las Vegas.
At home and awake until all hours, we find current CEO and jilted-lover Steve Ballmer. As much as he would prefer to part amiably, Microsoft can't let go, afraid to commit to another long-term relationship.
