It has been a monumental last 18 months for Nokia, it's safe to say, and no matter what happens from here onwards, it's safe to say that the good people of Finland are unlikely to forget the name Stephen Elop anytime soon.
But despite the upheaval, the promises, the burning platforms and everything else that's gone on under Elop's leadership, things are now coming to a head: either it turns it around now, or faces sinking for good.
In the end it's all about money. A company of Nokia's size typically has the kind of cash reserves to survive the lean times, a point Elop knew well when he committed the company to an entire year effectively in limbo between Symbian and Windows Phone.
But with a succession of worse-than-expected quarters having seen Nokia's cash reserves dwindle from €4.9bn to €2.8bn, and no sign that the end is in sight, many analysts are now concerned that Nokia will run out of money before it makes it out the other side.
In a poll of 30 analysts contacted by Reuters on Friday, consensus was that Nokia will blow through another €2bn over the next three quarters alone, leaving it perilously low on cash and still running in the negative.
Not all analysts agree that thing are quite that bad, but tellingly even the most optimistic said they expected Nokia's reserves to be completely exhausted next year.
Nokia says it's working aggressively to restructure and cut costs, but when you're bleeding money to the tune of billions, restructuring is only going to achieve so much.
The solution? Quite simply, Nokia needs to sell more phones. In other words, despite all the dramas and upheaval Nokia is exactly where it was 18 months ago. Only with a lot less money.
