After many rumors that Steve Ballmer is going to leave Microsoft after the release of Windows 8, he has personally said that he isn’t going. I don’t mind the guy, but I don’t like him, either. Stock prices went stagnant after he took the reigns, and I don’t feel he has the “nerd” in him as Billy did. Bill Gates was a nerd, he offered his own input into the products, he knew what to expect and what not to expect. I’m sure he has the energy, as he comes off as a car salesman or was mentored by Billy Mays!
Many Microsoft critics, including many Wall Streeters , have been wondering aloud whether Ballmer is the right man to lead Microsoft these days. At a Seattle Rotary Club meeting on June 29, when asked the question yet again, Ballmer had an official response.
“YOU TELL ME if I lack energy or conviction, or we’re not driving all the change we need to drive,” Ballmer told the audience, according to GeekWire.
