I guess I'm old school -- I remember when HP was a technical innovator, and am sad to see it go this way. I'm not sure if hiring Carly II at this point is hastening death, or just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

I think it is hard for Meg to restore the declining trend of HP, as HP is now a staggering monster.

It will be interesting to observe the changes in structure and strategy that occur in the next 11 months.

Hopefully with this choice of Meg Whitman, the revolving door of HP CEOs will stay still for awhile. One thing she clearly understands is the urgency of deciding yes or no on keeping the PC business. I love the comment "It's not like fine wine and does not get better with time." In fact, it's more like a gallon of milk that got its expiration date stamped on it the day Leo made his announcement about spinning out the PC biz -- a little more sour and a little closer to worthless with each passing day.
