It was former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer that approved the launch of Microsoft Office for iPad, not new CEO Satya Nadella, according to a Reddit AMA held by the Office for iPad team.

nuqqet9k: "Is Satya the MSsiah like the tech media is portraying him? How much of the recent headline-making moves can be credited to him, and how many were Ballmer's?"

officeforipad: "The decision to ship Office for iPad was made before Satya became CEO. Steve Ballmer approved the plan to ship Office for iPad. -- Kaberi, Technical Product Manager, Office for iPad"

While Microsoft has lost a competitive advantage for its Surface tablets, the Office team has already experienced immense success on the iPad. Just a week after the apps were released, Microsoft announced over 12 million downloads.

You can download Microsoft Office for iPad from the App Store for free.

Trust a fat, under educated douche to take the limelight. Wasn't he the guy that said that the iPhone would fail when it was launched? Ahhh, the man of many failures. What an absolute asshole.
