Microsoft With the end of the year in sight, the great list-making time has come upon us. Newsweek makes ten predictions for 2010, and at number 9, they predict the end of the road for Steve Ballmer at Microsoft. I never really thought about it that much, but if you line up Microsoft's failures over the past years, it's actually a miracle his head hasn't rolled yet.

That looked at Microsoft with Gates in charge and now with Ballmer leading(?) the way. The one sentence that is all I really remember is the conclusion that Microsoft was really moving forward when there was, essentially, a geek running the show; someone who dreamed in technology and fiddled around.

Ballmer is not that guy, not even close. He's all business and no nerd (though not letting his family use google or apple products makes him something!).

I wouldn't mind seeing him go, he's never been someone on the team throughout Microsoft history who was really involved in the tech side of things!
