The sooner Steve Ballmer leaves Microsoft, the sooner this company can begin to rebuild itself into the powerhouse it used to be. Ballmer is a ball and chain around the neck of the company. Trying to rest on past laurels is a loser's game.
I like Steve Ballmer. He's the best thing that happened to Apple and Google shareholders in the last 5 years. Because of Steve Ballmer, both AAPL and GOOG surpassed MSFT"s market cap. And please don't bring back the Start Menu in Windows 9. That way, more people will buy alternatives like Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android devices and Chromebooks instead. I plan to cash in on the Death of the PC, thanks to Steve Ballmer. Way to go Steve!
