how is it worthless? balmer took over in 2000 and MSFT continued to thrive. we have a lot of armchair CEOs here who think they know enough to criticize a man running a multinational company.
Ballmer has done a tonne of good, for sure, but running business isn't exactly as "mysterious" as you make it seem to be. It's just a matter of properly managing relationships and resources.
However, I do run my own company. At the same time, I have no idea how a tech company is run, since they place so many people at the helm, where I do construction and general labor, where there is often a very simple line of rank.
That said, Ballmer is old, and hopefully wise. He'll be using info provided to him by other to make the choices he does, along with his experience.
However, I think Windows8 says a lot about his focus, which, while a bit ahead of the curve, fails to miss the mark by nearly anyone's account. I am one of few people who thinks it's great.
And likewise, while many are judging here, so are you, so I find it rather quaint that you hold the opinion you do here. Nobody said their opinion was of any importance...
