It's impossible not to be moved: This video of Steve Ballmer's final speech to 13,000 Microsoft employees in the Key Arena in Seattle shows him crying as he says farewell after 13 years as CEO of the company and another 20 years by founder Bill Gates' side before that.

The atmosphere is like a rock concert:

"Soak it in all of you. You work for the greatest company in the world. And I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you," Ballmer says.

The initial reaction to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's imminent exit from the company may have been one of relief (at least as far as Wall Street and various critics were concerned).

Steve Ballmer’s Tearful Goodbye to Microsoft
SEPTEMBER 28, 2013 AT 3:55 PM

Say what you will about Steve Ballmer as a CEO. But you can’t deny that the longtime Microsoft chief has got heart.

In an emotional send-off to the company he was a part of for more than three decades, Ballmer delivered a tearful goodbye speech at Microsoft’s annual employee meeting, held in Seattle’s KeyArena and attended by more than 13,000 staff (with another 25,000 tuning in via Webcast).

“Soak it in,” Ballmer said in his heartfelt speech to employees. “You work for the greatest company in the world.”
