Steve Ballmer Has 'Developers' Moment, Again

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

Steve Ballmer had another "developers, developers, developers," moment this week at Microsoft's partner conference in New Orleans.

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.

    Personality-wise, he's more entertaining that Gates.

    Does this guy just lose it from time to time or is he like this at breakfast?
