Software Ballmer must go

Fake Steve piece by Dan Lyons: NY Times all but says it: Ballmer must go.

The scariest one, if you're Ballmer, is the following quote from an investor whose fund recently bought 800,000 shares of Borg stock:

"I am willing to give the present management another 15 months."

Oops. Very oops.

Along the same lines: Why the Borg's copycat business model no longer works.

Iulian:

I had no idea that it's down to beauty competitions between "Borg"-owned Balmer and the cool kids. Everyone's slingin sh*t in Microsoft's way, but not even 1% of those people have ever touched a Zune. Way to bias it all up :)

Ok, what happens if those 15 months pass without any modifications in the management system? Will anyone come up and admit to yet another cheap shot, just for some extra buzz?

Kit:

There is a competition. Always was. Just don't take it too seriously—I've put a "humor" tag in there, too.

But... Zune? Come on, not the Zune.
