JTT 5 Ballmer on the way out but is it really all his fault?

The latest episode of Just Talkin' Tech features a conversation about the impending departure of Steve Ballmer from Microsoft and how the company needs to change to survive.  I argue that Ballmer can't be held entirely responsible for Microsoft's missteps and include Microsoft's board of directors including Chairman Bill Gates partially responsible.

My friend lays the blame squarely on Ballmer alone suggesting that the board essentially deferred to his will.
By the way the video features Windows Vista, one of Microsoft's biggest failures under his tenure.
