[idéias] O que é esta empresa?

Se vocês acham o Peter Moore um pouco excêntrico, o que dizer do Steve Ballmer?! Esse homem é o CEO da Microsoft. A fortuna dele está estimada em 13.6 bilhões de dólares. E ele é completamente insano.

Direto da Wikipedia:

Steve Ballmer is known to be passionate in expressing his enthusiasm. Once, his vocal cords required surgery after he screamed "Windows, Windows, Windows" continuously at a meeting in Japan in 1991[1]. When Microsoft celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2000, Ballmer popped out of the anniversary cake to surprise the audience. His wild screaming and dancing on stage at an employees convention was caught on a widely-circulated video known as "Dance Monkeyboy." A few days later at a developers' conference, a sweat-soaked Ballmer repeatedly chanted "developers" at least 14 times in front of the bemused gathering ( video).

Ballmer is reputed to have a sometimes violent temper. Mark Lucovsky has claimed that Ballmer became violently enraged on hearing that Lucovsky was about to leave Microsoft for Google, Ballmer threw a violent and destructive rage, throwing a chair across the room and saying, according to Lucovsky: "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." Shortly after, he resumed trying to persuade Lucovsky to stay at Microsoft. Ballmer has described Lucovsky's account of the incident as a "gross exaggeration of what actually took place."
