Khruschev: "We will bury you!"
    
Ballmer: "I'm going to fucking bury that guy!"


Coincidence?  Well, yeah.  But still.

What I'm on about: court documents from the big Microsoft vs Google battle in which a former MS employee discusses Ballmer ranting, raving, talking about "burying" Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google), "killing Google", and throwing chairs across the room in a nice big totalitarian-not-getting-his-way temper tantrum.

Oh M$ what will you do next?

I was reading about this over at slashdot, and throwing chairs?!?! What the fuck, Thats something a 3 year old throwing a temper tantrum does. Although the 3 year old might not have the range of ballmer, but still the point remains, the guys need to grow up and learn to play nicely with each other. Hell if they had done that in the beginning instead of trying to be the playground bully of the tech world they would not have an army of geeks absolutely hating them.
