Steve Ballmer has formally stepped down from the board of Microsoft, citing his commitments to the NBA Clippers, teaching and study as his reasons.
He's still quite a large shareholder in Microsoft itself, but in a letter published by Microsoft's own News Center he's decided to call it quits. He insists, however that he will always "bleed Microsoft".
Also, as this infamous video shows, he'll sweat it as well. What, you thought I'd pass up the chance to run this one last time?
