Steve Ballmer’s is set to officially step down as Microsoft CEO in a few months. See – after the break – his energetic, and tearful goodbye to an arena full of thousands of Microsoft employees.

The video was exclusively received by The Verge. Lasting just short of 5 minutes, it shows a weepy Steve Ballmer on-stage trying to put into words his 30 year long career at Microsoft. He takes help from the final dance music from Dirty Dancing, which says “I had the time of my life, and I owe it all to you.”

I must admit, watching this video gave me a minor case of the goosebumps. I have been passionate about personal computing technology since I started using a Pentium II PC back in the late 90s, so I’ve seen people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Steve Ballmer build up their companies, and then leaving them once their time is over. These retirements make me feel old!
