(NASDAQ:FB), has leapfrogged rest all contenders to become the second most favorite of online betting market with odds of 5/1.

Till last week it was Microsoft’s in-house executive Kevin Turner and ex-executive Steve Sinofsky, ex-President Windows Division, were trailing behind Stephen Elop with odds of 6/1 and 7/1.

The Most Eligible Next CEO Of Microsoft

Many believe that Stephen Elop may be a difficult selection for Microsoft as this would result in jeopardized market situation for troubled Nokia. Therefore other contenders could have better chances until Microsoft and Nokia doesn’t reach to a sort of ‘new tieup’.

  1. It definitely has to be Sheryl Sandberg. With the kind of experience and energy that may be brought in, she would probably be the best choice. Although MS does not need to turn profitable, it definitely needs a better strategy to get the mobile device business to start performing and giving out on ROI. Who would be better than somebody who has done this earlier as well?

  2. Whoever Microsoft hires they need to do some serious considerations. With the upcoming launch of X-Box one having mixed reviews and Sony taking the lead, in my opinion, in the console gaming world, Microsoft will need strong leadership to pull out of the rut it is in.
