Straight Angle™: I am Thrilled!

I am Thrilled! 

I am actually, thrilled to read this story hitting the wires sometime today and so, this post doesn't deserve a holiday. I had always maintained how much S**t is MS, but this goes just to prove that the entire system is such. But why am I complaining. It is much more interesting to think about this outburst from the CEO of the world's 2 most respected company(in 2004- according to this report).....

To read the entire story from the original source, click on the picture.

But to put up the story here too, an employee leaving MS to join Google had come to meet the CEO Mr. Steve Ballmer and he had asked him the reasons for his quiting. The words spoken by the CEO goes something like this:

(Reproduced from John Battelle's Search Blog)

A reliable source has passed along a legal document in the ongoing lawsuit between Google and Microsoft over Google's hiring of Kai-Fu Lee. The document is the "Declaration of Mark Lucovsky" in the case. Lucovsky was a distinguished engineer at Microsoft who defected to Google in November of 2004. His statement makes for some pretty interesting reading, to say the least.

The statement reads in part:

Prior to joining Google, I set up a meeting on or about November 11, 2004 with Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer to discuss my planned departure....At some point in the conversation Mr. Ballmer said: "Just tell me it's not Google." I told him it was Google.

At that point, Mr. Ballmer picked up a chair and threw it across the room hitting a table in his office. Mr. Ballmer then said: "Fucking Eric Schmidt is a fucking pussy. I'm going to fucking bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again. I'm going to fucking kill Google." ....

Thereafter, Mr. Ballmer resumed trying to persuade me to stay....Among other things, Mr. Ballmer told me that "Google's not a real company. It's a house of cards."

-End of post.

Now, I am not at all surprised by this diatribe. It just goes to prove something about Google.
