Being a terrible CEO at Microsoft is being a hero in my book.

As someone noted below, "Microsoft used to control the future of computing". This was a very bad proposition, as we all know how evil they are in general, and incompetent whenever it comes to actually doing something new, as opposed to copycatting and driving out of business their competition.

I will always remember and be thankful to Ballmer for making MS a nonissue.

Yea--that's the best way to look at the argument.
