    wasnt sure where to post this bt meh.
    after watching videos of ballmer (m$ ceo) im finding my self with built up rage. dno quite why, hes just a moron i guess.

    anyway, im thinking about doing a 'sponsored punch ballmer in the face and film it'. I live in the uk so as long as i can get like some money towards flights i would be more than happy to take a swing at that idiot. anyone intrested in sponsoring me?

    also i might make a website, punchballmer.com

    Yeah - there's all sorts about him that makes everyone but the most diehard MS supporter's fists itch.

    He speaks like he read about motivational speaking from a book. A bad one.

    I really have no idea what makes him tick. Drugs might be involved...

    ...Perhaps if you can pull a switcheroo of an interesting drug with whatever he's on we might get far more entertaining results ;)

    :D Beat me to it.

    I dunno... I dunno about the wisdom in being the one who wants to punch the 250lb angry arm-flapping man in the face. This particular emo boy is not punching *anyone* in the face.

    Ballmer is a crazy SOB by most reports; he is a brilliant man, but I believe that his public actions work against Microsoft, and thus in some ways he actually helps Apple out. When Ballmer rants, he comes across as very crazy and it is not in a lovable, over-the-top sort of way, but instead in a disturbing, homicidal rage sort of way. When somebody that seems so obviously off his rocker insists that iPods are terrible, nobody pays any attention to it, or sometimes it actually could get used to promote the iPod ("Buy an iPod or you could end up like this guy!").

    Steve Ballmer is brilliant? First I've heard of it. In what way, pray tell?

    In many ways, Ballmer is like Jobs: He inspires hatred and admiration; There may well be a method to his madness, but no one can be really sure; Millions of fans hang on his every word...

    okay, analogy fell apart. Punch the beggar. I'll paypal $5 in unmarked bills from my secure, untraceable paypal account. :D

    Seriously, pour your energies into something constructive like punching Michael Dell. Ballmer'd kick your butt.

    I wouldn't give you any money because it doesn't cost anything to throw a punch and you just can't buy "balls" so I guess you're stuck with you're anger my friend, eheh, just kidding.

    Still, every time I see that "Developers Developers!!!" I feel like throwing up, mainly because the guy could really use some deodorant (yeah he sweats like a wild pig), and second because I can't even believe that M$ thinks this guy is comparable to Steve Jobs as a spokesman and motivator.

    I think a punch is a little excessive, an apple pie would be perfect though, with a hidden AXE deo-stick inside :D ahahah, I make myself laugh...

    If I would have to bet in the place where M$ got Ballmer I would definitely go with "The Zoo", all in :D

    Ballmer is second only to Steve Jobs as the biggest reason for Apple's revival. Don't hate the man, instead hope that he stays in charge at Microsoft for as long as possible.

    Ballmer is the unlikeable representation of Windows. I can respect Bill Gates, even though I hate his operating system. Gates is a smart man who built an empire from the ground up, but Ballmer is just a sycophantic business manager who has never sparked any innovation.

    Agreed. I've sat in on one of his 'KILL THEM ALL' bull sessions, and we were just sitting there, looking at each other going "is this guy for real??".

    I really hope that SB becomes CEO for life, I really do. That will make the world a better place for the rest of us.

    I always have the Developers video on my MB when I am with customers, both the original, and the one set to music (where you see him running across the stage as well). If the subject comes up regarding Microsoft, I show them SB in action. The reaction is almost a universal WTF??? :D
