MacNN: Microsoft under pressure to drop Steve Ballmer

Pressure is mounting inside Microsoft to replace its CEO Steve Ballmer after years of lukewarm performance, sources said this morning. Executives are happy with the solid financial performance but are increasingly frustrated that Ballmer has done nothing exciting enough at Microsoft to raise its share price. If he doesn’t act within the next six to nine months, there may be a ‘mutiny’ that forces the executive out, according to Daily Beast insiders.
