As nobody is interested in this,I might as well post(again).Noone out there?
Apparently the tirade from Ballmer was aimed at Google CEO Eric Schmidt (not the chair throwing),when he said he was going to "f****** bury that guy",and "kill Google"
And I always thought that Mr Ballmer was such a nice guy.He seemed that way at video interviews I'd seen at Channel 9.I guess we all have our off days.

it's not that

no one is interested, it's that you posted it on a saturday.
weekends tend to be real dead around here. :)

ballmer's reaction / comments are proved by past occurences with ms killing competing business in any fashion they can.

so this isn't a suprise at all.

there isn't a lot of activity making it hard to read through them.

Hanging out at the TR web site on weekends is like walking through a giant empty aircraft hangar or warehouse. Only the secondary lights are on. You can hear your own footsteps reverberating off of the walls. I can only conclude that SOME people have better things to do on the weekends. I can just hear them now.

"I want to spend time with my wife and kids."
"I have a life."
"I have other interests besides computers."

At least now we know who the REAL computer geeks are around here. :-)

"Repeat after me.I must not hang around the web at weekends.I must get a life.I am not a geek,or a sad bas****."
My wife and five year old son think exactly the same as you do :)
