    They're about 6 years too late getting him to step down.
    I can't think of ONE Ballmer-era product that wasn't a massive failure.

    Sorry, I posted a tech story in the tech forum, not current events. My bad.

    They should fire everyone at the main headquarters and have the Xbox division take over the entire company.

    As I said before, I can't recall ONE Ballmer-era success for Microsoft. X-box and Windows XP were Gates-era. And the Xbox was a success because they basically bought one of the best video game developers (Bungie) and threw a shit-ton of money at them to make their own dream hardware. Other than that, every product from Ballmer (Zune, Kin, Surface, Windows phone redux, etc.) was a piece of crap.

    Wished M$ had an arena for employees to battle each other LAPRer style to the death (loser gets fired).
