    I don't get it.

    This has been something that has been in production for years. Shortly before he left, Ballmer made mention to the fact that they were going to try to get the iPad version out first (something he didn't initially want, sure, but it was still happening). It's like people think that Nadella woke up one day, coded Office for iPad that day, and then decided to ship it out.

    He's the current CEO and the one announcing it. That's the way it works.

    Except people are acting like this is something Ballmer had no hand in PERIOD. I know that a lot of the time there are people who can't think beyond the current CEO, but I'm talking about supposed tech experts. They should know better.

    Well lets thank the entire division that made it and give each and every one of them 20 minutes of screen time and a speech

    Where are you seeing that people are acting like Ballmer had nothing to do with it?

    I've been reading it over at Yahoo tech, and at least one article at ZDnet about how Ballmer was trying to kill iPad Office.

    Also, can't we just celebrate that Microsoft is finally advancing, bringing their services to other devices and finally realizing that the world doesn't solely run on Windows like it used to...there are other options now.

    Who cares what people are saying and giving credit to who for what. Microsoft is a team of people that make up the company.......not just one person. So good job to TEAM MICROSOFT today and Office for iPad and the Azure integration services.

    ​Giving the division some credit would be nice, but hey ... sarcasm means you're cool right?

    I am glad they're advancing, I just get frustrated when people try to act as though Ballmer did nothing good for Microsoft. Satya hasn't actually done anything and people are acting like he's the second coming. It just gets frustrating.

    I don't tend to talk to people who use Office in their real life and business ... or people at all in real life.

    He was amazing.

    ​My problem isn't him, it's the tech media as a whole that gets under my skin.

    If you constantly read about the opinions of journalists you will drive yourself off the grand canyon. Their job is to get people to click their articles and talk about them all over......they've succeeded with you.

    Well he was the vice president of the Cloud and Enterprise group, so technically he did play a big part.

    Good news for some bad news for others: Office Mobile was updated for Android and iPhone. Biggest change you wont need Office 365 to use it anymore even better/worse: you wont need Office 365 to even edit Documents. Basically its completely free right now.

    Yes, he should get a lot of credit. But should he be getting as much of it as he is?

    There's a good chance he was more involved than Ballmer.

    I'm not sure what app you're using but creating/editing documents is definitely not working for me on my work iPad.

    The question should be why should Ballmer get much of the credit anyway if he was against it to begin with?

    He was the head of Microsoft's cloud division. It powers Office 365 and several other Microsoft products. He probably had to work closely with the Office team to make sure everything worked smoothly.
