Microsoft vs Google.... now personal.



Quote:
The ever colorful Steve Ballmer is never at a loss for words. It appears that Google is the target of his latest frustrations:

After learning Lucovsky was leaving to take a job at Google, Ballmer picked up his chair and hurled it across his office, according to the declaration.

Ballmer then pejoratively berated Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Lucovsky recalled.

"I'm going to f---ing bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again," the declaration quotes Ballmer. "I'm going to f---ing kill Google."

Well, everything that goes up must come down. Its entirely possible with Apple's success of late an the threat that google poses, we are seeing the near total self destruction of microsoft from the inside out. For the first time they have real competition, there's OS's that are viable alternatives to Windows, Google most definitely PWNS msn.com and the microsoft network, and with almost every virus adware and spyware is targeted directly at reg based windows, causing people to go to Apple (i'm talking about the average american here, not people into unix and linux and such an no harry, i'm not forgetting about freebsd)

Microsoft is at the top, and tehy got used to being at the top and now the only place they have to go is down. Also, they got so used to having no competition that they got lazy.
