Mini-Microsoft on Ballmer Retirement

Mini-Microsoft: “A well prepared blogger, even a crusty spider-web covered 99.9%-retired one like me, would have at least had a post ready to go for this glorious circumstance, like how most news organizations have obituaries written up and ready to publish. I had no such optimism that this would be happening before 2017.”

Emphasis mine. It sounds like the troops have wanted this for a while. It also makes me wonder if the theory that Steven Sinofsky is Mini is credible?
