Microsoft names Kevin Turner chief operating officer

Yesterday, Microsoft named Kevin Turner to be its first chief operating officer in more than three years. Turner has been the president and chief executive of Sam's Club, the warehouse club unit of Wal-Mart Stores and has spent nearly 20 years in management at the world's largest retailer. Wal-Mart promoted Doug McMillon to replace Turner, effective immediately.

My sources report that cheers rang out in the Home Office when the announcement was made.
