Mark Lucovsky, an engineer at Microsoft who defected to Google in November of 2004, stated that he met with Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer that month to discuss his 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: ‘F***ing Eric Schmidt is a f***ing p****. I’m going to f***ing bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again. I’m going to f***ing kill Google.’
