    Ballmer to Quit... um.... I mean... Retire

    Really? Am I the first to comment on this? Or is this on some other thread?

    Personally I'm a little confused by this. He's done a lot these past few months to try and turn the company into a devices and services company. I don't really see why he's retiring in the beginning stages of this transition.
    That's what she said.

    Well, that's somewhat disconcerting. With Ballmer behind the wheel, Microsoft's downfall is inevitable. I was looking forward to watching that long downspin too.

    I'd hate to break it to you, but Microsoft isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    Me too. I was so disconcerted that I just bought Microsoft stock.

    Microsoft has all its best days behind. So why not jump ship now while it's still afloat?

    Apparently, you haven't seen all the cash in the cargo hold.

    You guys are making it sound like Microsoft is on the verge of going under or something. They made almost $5 billion last quarter.
    That's what she said.
