Dear Partners –

Is it Christmas already?   It looks like Christmas.  We have fresh snow on the ground.  I put a Christmas tree up in the living room three weeks ago.  Cards from family and friends are pouring in.  And Lisa Hughes even gave me a tray of Christmas cookies yesterday (Lisa – we ran out!).  I am even preparing for my last minute shopping bender.  But before I go, I have one unfinished bit of business to attend to…and it involved you!

I want to offer my thanks for your loyalty, passion and commitment.  This has been an incredible year to say the least.  And we have accomplished incredible things.  But I wouldn’t be at Microsoft without you…so I offer you my heartfelt thanks!

And whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza or Festivus – take some well-deserved time to spend with family and friends – relax and recharge! 

Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! 

Cheers!
