Microsoft's Steve Ballmer being called to step down

At the very top of the ranks at Microsoft sits the world's scariest man, Steve Ballmer. The dude is f*cking freaky, no question. In the past he has scared the sh*t out of me from a distance at press conferences. Just his existence gives me the creeps sometimes. For this reason alone I think he should step down. I feel like he would be a good franchise manager for a local cluster of Cold Stone Creamery locations or something. 

Others have more solid reasons to ask the Microsoft CEO to step down. Hedge fund manager David Einhorn was the first to call Ballmer down, saying that he needs to leave and "give someone else a chance." 

"His continued presence is the biggest overhang on Microsoft's stock," Einhorn said at a investment research conference. His company owns 9 million MS shares.

GI points out that IBM overtook Microsoft in market value for the first time in 15 years. And now Apple is the biggest tech company in the US. Things were better when Bill Gates was boss. He was just nerdy, not scary.
