Hurd on the street: HP CEO out, Microsoft brass in play?

Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Mark Hurd’s stepping down after a sexual harassment investigation found he violated HP “standards of business conduct.”

I wonder if the folks in Redmond saw it coming.

Hewlett-Packard was Microsoft’s longtime partner. HP’s website says their “partnership is one of the oldest of its kind in the industry.”

But lately HP’s been stepping out – first with the comely Finn, Linux, and then going all the way with its Silicon Valley neighbor, Palm.

I wonder if HP’s search committee might still consider any Microsoft executives as a replacement for Hurd. Bob Muglia perhaps? Kevin Turner?
