Steve Ballmer should be on Ritalin:

Quote:
Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer threw a chair across his office and threatened to "F*c*ing kill Google" when told a key employee was leaving to join the search giant.

He's just upset because he's losing "developers, developers, developers, developers..."

"Woo! Give it up for me! I got four words for ya: I'll f*****g kill Google!"

etc.

Or there is this great Poll on one of the best news sites ever (the register)
here: http://www.theregister.com/2005/09/05/steve_ballmer_online_poll/

That video of Stevey cracked me up. I think he should be the Windows Masscott so we can mess up every picture they make Razz

it's hardly surprising that employees are defecting in their droves - google has a nice, friendly creche whereas microsoft chant ballmer's doctrine at you Twisted Evil (and you don't want your childs first words to be 'linux is communism').

oh, and there's a comedy clip of him advertising winblows 1.0
http://media.ebaumsworld.com/ballmerwindows.wmv
- love the interface, love the suit Laughing
(i'm quite sure there was actually a background bmp with that exact pattern in winblows 3.1).

Having now seen that .wmv file from the above post I know where Lucas Arts got the idea from for the Stan character in the Monkey Island games.

This link has many links to Steve Videos if anyone is interested. I like the one where they compare Steve Ballmer to hitler..... Seems they are trying to tell us that Microsoft is Nazi Razz

That means they will be expensive and Linus Torvalds will then come in after the M$ batteries and the new Linux batteries will be distributed for free and M$ will say that their batteries cost less than the Linux ones Then the great IBM battery powered product makers that supply their products with the free batteries, will sponser a study and prove them wrong. Then Ballmer will throw battery powered chairs accross a room and threaten to kill Google, the battery pile search tool. The story ends with M$ loosing and Steve Ballmer ending up in a mental institute........

I'm glad that is in the open now. Smile
