Microsoft CEO on his way out?
Rumors are swirling that CEO Steve Ballmer is on the way out the door at Microsoft. Since he took over the CEO job from Bill Gates in 2000, Microsoft has seen its stock price stagnate and competitors such as Google and Yahoo rise to dominate the online-advertising business.

And lately, Ballmer's been noted for his big mouth -- at a recent speaking engagement, he bragged about how Microsoft vanquished Netscape, an action which brought a massive antitrust lawsuit against the company. If Microsoft is planning to give Ballmer the boot, Business 2.0 has some suggestions for his replacement.
