    Ballmer wants to kill us all!
    Article Link

    A Ballmer quote from the article:
    Ballmer then pejoratively berated Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Lucovsky recalled. "I'm going to f------ bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again," the declaration quotes Ballmer. "I'm going to f------ kill Google."
    Okay - can you say "Desperate, losing lunatic" Monkey boy?
    Sure - competition between rivals is expected and normal. Even name-calling I think isn't out of the ordinary nowadays. But personal attacks in front of employees?

    This is why I'm never giving those idiots another cent of my money...

    I don't know if I would refer to somebody making as much money as him as an "idiot"... He obviously isn't stupid or he wouldn't be where he is.

    Now, an immature, jealous little boy... sure... I'll go with that... And no... He won't be getting any more of my money either.

    Wow, what can you really say to that one? Taking competition to a whole new level, or should I say, down a level.

    That is horrible, but that is microsoft for you, they see somebody gaining on them and they can't handle the pressure... Bill gates is probably doing the same thing but in the privacy of his own home...
    They won't be getting any of my money any more either, and I was going to buy VPC well i guess I will live without those few windows only programs or download VPC off torent (although never used one before but seems to me microsoft doesn't deserve the money)

    Thats not Microsoft, thats business in general, no company is going to just roll over and die because competition moves in. Ballmer is a bit nutty though.

    Mr. Lee is in the drivers seat in that matter. He wrangled himself quite a nice contract, plus Google pays all his legal fees. Life is good ....

    AFAIK he's the Microsoft CEO now. Gates has some other function there...

    We have Steve Jobs (admittedly also supposedly a bit of an ego-maniac), but they have monkey-boy.

    "After learning Lucovsky was leaving to take a job at Google, Ballmer picked up his chair and hurled it across his office"

    "I'm going to f------ bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again," the declaration quotes Ballmer. "I'm going to f------ kill Google."





    Unbelievable.
