Steve Ballmer's temper tantrum over Nokia buyout led to his firing, says report

Quote:
Steve Ballmer's famously volcanic temper was the last straw for Microsoft's board, and eventually led to his firing after he berated them so loudly about their not backing his Nokia buyout plan that his shouts could be heard outside the closed doors of a conference room. So reports Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

Was there more to the firing than just Ballmer's temper tantrum?

The article by Bloomberg BusinessWeek provides an excellent look at Ballmer's last days, the hiring of Satya Nadella as his replacement, and the issues that led to Ballmer's firing.

Pretty funny stuff,
At first it started out like the odd Gate's first day had to load windows 8

Possibly that was the only exercise the guy ever got

I wonder if any chairs were harmed during the event.
