    Retail customers often want to customize their products and in Jobs' kingdom, this will not happen.

    Enterprise customers definitely customize their products and that will definitely not happen in Jobs' kingdom.

    He'd kill off the profitable printer division (IPG) - there are too many different products to his liking so that there would be only two or three products.

    So, is Jobs' as CEO a good thing? It is if HP wants to lose all its corporate customers and most of its retail customers. Retail customers would flee to Dell and the enterprise customers would hop over to IBM.

    If HP wants to become a toy company, this is a good thing.

    More seriously, it would be great if Jon Rubinstein were to get it, but I think that's quite a long shot.

    Jobs would likely do most of those things, which is why he'd never be offered the job.

    In reality, he's not likely to work another day in his life. I suspect the day he resigned from Apple was the day he could no longer physically do the work. By now, he's either in a hospice or hospice environment.

    I agree, he's a brilliant guy and he'll be an icon for a long time. I suspect he doesn't want to inherit the mess that HP has become; I don't feel he has the urge for such a giant challenge.

    At this point, I'd guess that he wants to hang around Apple and fulfill whatever personal/geeky desires he has until the day he passes away.

    FYI, here's what the Wall Street Journal is saying about this fiasco right now:

    Here are my nominations:
    CEO = Todd Bradley
    President = Rod Whitby
    HP Board of Directors = webOS Internals + HomeBrew
    Director of R & D = Rahul Sood
    Hardware = HTC
    Test Environment = "Us" (the beloved, diehard webOS/PreCentral Community)

    yayyyy :.)

    Note: Would love to read everyone's choices too. Peace.

    Apparently part of the problem is no one is dumb enough to want the job....

    True. According to this article published by webOS roundup, HP is falling apart at the seams. Our beloved webOS is better off with HTC, Dell, Lenovo...a friendlier home.

    Meg Whitman is a horrible choice. Its the easy, glamorous choice for the board. Todd Bradley would have been the right choice but I'm sure the board wasn't a fan as they were ready to jettison him off to the PSG spinoff which I guess they still might do.
