re: Ballmer Is Off The Matrix
My wife's cousin's husband has worked for MS for many years in the Dallas area, dating back to when Bill was still around. It remains a good company to work for, they treat their people well.
Ballmer was never a technologist, he was always a business guy. If Gates didn't have Ballmer when MS began it's meteoric growth, unlikely they would be the company they are today. Someone had to be the "bad guy", the one that focused on the financial side of the business, and he filled that role well.
Don't forget, Gates is still on board of directors, if he had strong reservations about Win 8 path it would not exist in the form it is. But buck stops at top, so it becomes Ballmer's failed vision when he was never the vision guy in first place.

One? There 16B+ George Washingtons that confirm that Steve is one of the best executives around. You don't build that kind of a following being a slouch.

Will no one step forward to say a good word for Ballmer? He must have done something right, somewhere along the line ... right?
