Microsoft head honcho Steve Ballmer has received his first public call to stand down as CEO. Hedge fund manager David Einhorn accused Ballmer of being 'stuck in the past'. As the original Reuters report noted, there have been disapproving rumblings concerning Ballmer for some time, but this is the most public, most pointed criticism thus far.
'His continued presence is the biggest overhang on Microsoft's stock,' maintained Einhorn.
Apple surpassed Microsoft to become the biggest tech company in the USA last year and, only two weeks ago, Microsoft was overtaken again, this time in market shares by IBM for the first time in 15 years.
