  1. Savage: Can’t explain how is the name of the infamous Ballmer there!!?? More, who voted for this… gentleman?

    Because some people equate profit with a sign of good CEOship, and MS makes a huge profit. Heck you can put a monkey and it’d be a “good CEO”. For these kind of people, the mess that is Vista doesn’t make a blip in the radar.

    I think Schmidt is a good CEO, but Jobs (with iPhone hit) and Hurd (HP turnaround) deserve to be the top 2.
