Would Bill Gates' Return to Microsoft Help or Hinder?

The continuing drumbeat from some pundits calling for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer stepping down has recently included calls for former honcho Gates to return. The speculation was that Gates would, in short, reinvigorate the company's position on Wall St. as well as re-assert technology and innovation as the principal missions of the company, kinda Steve Jobs 2.0-ish. Interesting advice coming from pundits, but I believe Gates has never taken any pundit's advice. Gates recently dispelled any notion of that happening, though.

Why would the return of Gates be a good (or bad) thing for Microsoft? Comment here.
