Ballmer makes it to year 11 as Microsoft CEO

Eleven years ago today, January 13, 2000, Steve Ballmer was appointed CEO of Microsoft.

Increasingly, many, including me, are wondering how many more years he’ll continue in that role.

There are more than a few shareholders and Microsoft employees who want Ballmer tossed. After his seeming disagreement over future direction with Server and Tools President Bob Muglia — who announced this week he is leaving the company after 23 years — I’ve heard from even more folks carping for Ballmer to go. If Ballmer won’t go gracefully, they say, the Microsoft board should do what AMD’s board just did to former CEO Dirk Meyer and force Ballmer out.

Ballmer is a legend, dumping him would be a really bad move.

I lost all respect for the man after seeing him perform that ridiculous routine to "Get on your feet".
