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.

I wonder one thing though: why the fuck they spend a lot of cash and a lot of man hours there at Microsoft Research if they aren't going to use almost nothing form what the research guys are coming with. I mean they had a lot of bright ideas, they've done a lot of work and for nothing.

Good F-ing question. I love open source, but the stuff microsoft research comes up with is awesome. They really need to figure out how to integrate that stuff with their existing product base in a compatible manner.
