Snippet: Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to Retire ☇

Shared on August 23, 2013

Something tells me this was a forced “retirement” as opposed to his choice. Anyone want to guess what’s the over/under on the tech press guessing that Scott Forstall will be in the running? Here’s an excerpt from Ballmer’s internal memo to Microsoft employees:

Microsoft is an amazing place. I love this company. I love the way we helped invent and popularize computing and the PC. I love the bigness and boldness of our bets. I love our people and their talent and our willingness to accept and embrace their range of capabilities, including their quirks. I love the way we embrace and work with other companies to change the world and succeed together. I love the breadth and diversity of our customers, from consumer to enterprise, across industries, countries, and people of all backgrounds and age groups.
