It sounds like Ballmer is doing a bad job, in a position where doing a good job is nearly impossible.

Maybe Steve Jobs' reputation for being a horrible bastard behind closed doors was what made Apple tick. This (along with being a visible, charismatic leader) perhaps helped focus everyone on satisfying just him, which in turn generally meant serving the greater goals of the company. Perhaps Ballmer needs to chuck more chairs around.

Jobs, his other flaws aside, was a genius with a singular vision and the charisma/power to make it happen. Ballmer, not so much.
