Steve Ballmer says goodbye in tearful farewell video: ‘I had the time of my life’

The tip of an period.

No, he’s not technically leaving simply but. However Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer stated goodbye to the firm he loves — one he joined when it was only a startup and he was a younger man — in a tearful speech at the company’s annual employee meeting this week in Seattle.

The Verge obtained video of the emotionally-charged speech — which is pure Ballmer. Sure, there are lots of tears, and some high-fives with the crowd and even a bit of singing to the theme tune from “Soiled Dancing.” 

However, in true Ballmer model, it’s one hundred pc uncooked ardour.

“I simply wish to get pleasure from this for a minute,” says Ballmer as a large “Thanks!” message seems on the huge display screen of Key Area. “Soak it in. All of you. Soak it in. You’re employed for the best firm in the world. Soak it in.”

The Microsoft staff go nuts, with a number of yelling out “We love you.” Ballmer responds by saying that “this isn’t about anybody individual, it’s about the firm.”
