Steve Ballmer just announced his retirement, and the CEO of Microsoft has decided to call it a day within the next 12 months. The head of Redmond had been under fire from several circles, former employees, media and investors.

A top Microsoft analyst reveals that ValueAct is still pursuing a seat in the company’s board of directors.
