Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

Dear Shareholders

Dear Shareholders,

I really am the worst CEO in America. I have put a clueless Steve Jobs wanna-be in charge of Windows and he has created a POS called Windows 8 that will soon cost us billions of dollars.

Sell your stock as fast as you can.

- Steven Ballmer
Worst CEO in America according to Forbes

Don't confuse an opinion piece for an actual study using hard data.

I didn't confuse anything and included the source.

The rest of Wall St will agree in a few months.

Their business model is reduced to milking the MS Office monopoly.
Whatever new they have come up with since Gates is gone has been mediocre or a disaster.
