The wrong co-founder

ballmer.jpgIn your video regarding Bill Gates leaving Microsoft and how Steve Ballmer will become the leader at Microsoft, you incorrectly stated that Steve Ballmer co-founded Microsoft.

He did not. Microsoft was started by Paul Allen and Bill Gates. Steve Ballmer joined Microsoft in 1980, that being after it was founded.
