Steve Ballmer Hits 11 Years As Microsoft CEO

Posted Jan 14, 2011

Steve Ballmer of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has just hit his 11th anniversary as the CEO. Instead Microsoft announced that the next Windows version would support ARM processors and System-on-a-Chip technology. Ballmer did not announce a tablet at CES which may have been a smart move because the media and analysts would constantly compare Microsoft to the Apple iPad. Ballmer knows that announcing a subpar tablet product would negatively affect Wall Street expectations of the company. It is better to announce it when such a device is high quality, just like the Microsoft Kinect. What do you think about Ballmer’s time at the company? Do you think he will be the CEO for at least another 11 years or do you think it is time for someone else to step up to the plate at the company. Let us know in the comments.
