Former CEO retains shares, though.
Les Grossman personified, I'm gonna miss him.
Although I'm willing to bet it was not a pleasant experience to work for him so perhaps I shouldn't joke about it.
Since Ballmer became CEO, I can't say the company was doing all that great. I'm not sure if he was directly involved in everything that flopped but regardless, I'm not sure he's the best choice for Nadella to come to when in search of answers.
You say that schmidtbag, but some people would say that during his tenure he tripled Microsoft's net income and revenue, so from a financial stand point he was a success.
But could it have done better? This Vanity Fair piece, Microsoft's Lost Decade, is an eye-opening account of how Microsoft changed under Ballmer's leadership.
That's the golden question isn't it, could it have done better ? Possibly, probably, yes, no.
This maybe a time to ask parallel universe Gareth how Microsoft is doing on the other side, or has he been trapped in amber

Goes to show how far a second rate car sales man can get, any thing is possible in this world.
I wouldn't buy a toaster from this guy, time for proper managers to step in now that actually have considered intelligence,
Look how far brash got him, impressive but thank you and don't bang your head on the way out.
