It's hard to imagine J.P. Morgan ever running across a stage screaming "investors, investors, investors!"
Or any other corporate chieftain for that matter -- except for Steve Ballmer.
Wall Street may hate Microsoft's, but the rest of us are going to miss this dude. In an era of stuffed-shirt chief executives who don't scratch their noses without first getting instructed by their public relations departments, Microsoft's CEO let it all hang out, as you can see from the following sample of clips over the years.
Ballmer: "I am a PC"
Bill Gates & Steve Ballmer Night at the Roxbury theme
"Developers, developers, developers" aka The Monkey Boy Dance
Ballmer screams "Web Developer" on Mix08!
Ballmer pitches Windows 1.0
Ballmer pitches Windows XP
Ballmer (and Gates) "Da, da, da"
Dissing the first iPhone
"Mr. Ballmer, would you sign my Mac?"
