Microsoft In business school the first thing they teach you about CEOs is: it is the CEO’s job to increase the shareholder value of the company. Since taking the position Ballmer has decreased shareholder value, as reflected by stock price, by -56.63%. That. Is. Not. Good . . . Microsoft should be searching for a new CEO right now.

well... off course you could;) if Ballmer was capable to get this position and roll it for so long... anyone with IQ>1 can (with some of his comments i was even wondering if it wouldn't be better if next MS CEO would be corpse, wouldn't do any good, but at least wouldn't tank the company either), as long as expected success rate and business vision doesn't change with end of his days.
