Steve Ballmer Has 'Developers' Moment, Again

This time Steve was talking about Microsoft's "just-don't-quit" approach, detailing the company's long-term, tenacious and partner-centric way of doing business. Just in case we didn't get it the first time, Steve clarified things for us: that's 'long-term,' 'tenacious,' and 'partner-centric.'

And for the folks who really weren’t listening? In true Steve Ballmer style: rinse, repeat.

“We are going to keep the same old Microsoft approach –- long-term, tenacious and partner-centric,” Mr. Ballmer said during a webcast of the speech, according to NYT. “Long-term, long-term, long-term.. We don’t go home. We just keep coming and coming and coming. Tenacious, tenacious, tenacious.”

However, that wasn't the only weird moment Ballmer had. Check out the video below and you'll see Ballmer jump out of his chair during an interview, shouting about 'Windows 7 baby', excitement, the economy and other things like, pumping up the volume and Microsoft's ability to BOOM, make great things happen.

    It may just be me, but I wouldn't trust Balmer around my children.

    Exuberant and passionate sure beats dull and boring. I'd rather have a good laugh with/at Steve than be subjected to a re-run of high school maths lessons.

    Besides, you don't get to run Microsoft (or do anything else requiring more than a pulse) by being average.

    is there something really wrong with outbursts of exuberance? he's filthy rich and their products are only adding to it... why not show it sometimes?

    i don't even like this guy, but he's not a hitler...
