Steve Ballmer got emotional at the last employee meeting he’d run as CEO of Microsoft. The Verge has video of it.
I’m sure you’re expecting some snarky commentary out of me – frankly, I was expecting some snarky commentary out of me for this one – but I got nothin’. Dude’s been the butt of a lot of jokes I’ve made over the years, but he’s got a passion and love for Microsoft that is rare to see in a CEO, and I respect the hell out of him for it. So, today, he gets a pass from me.
Even for what appears to be a brown-shoe-black-belt-navy-pants combo. I’m gonna let that slide.
