Ballmer is gone. Good riddance. What a horrid CEO. Here's to a new era at Microsoft, hopefully the new CEO will steer the company to a time when nobody would think of calling it an 'Evil Empire' anymore. PS We of course saw this coming, back from when Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates was critical of Ballmer's tenure in public - and noted that one of Ballmer's biggest failures was Windows Phone (and I said on this blog then, that Microsoft is thus no longer even committed to the future of Windows Phone, thus even more urgently, Nokia needs another smartphone OS platform as 'backup plan' alongside Windows Phone, because Windows Phone is clearly not viable in the smartphone market)
Which brings me to Ballmer's bumbling disciple, Stephen Elop - more nasty, even more untruthful, even more cruel and ruthless, even more delusional, even more incompetent and even more destructive to his company, in shorter time, than Ballmer was to Microsoft. Steve Ballmer was one of the worst CEOs in Fortune 500 companies today. Stephen Elop is the worst CEO of a Fortune 500 company, ever. The Worst CEO Ever. It is high time for Nokia's Board to act now and fire the poor bastard. Nokia Board: Fire Elop Now!
