"I'm Going to F***ing Kill Google" Says Microsoft CEO - 09/07/05 08:13 PM

According to MS engineer Mark Lucovsky, after saying he is quitting to go to Google, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer hurled his chair and said "I'm going to f***ing kill Google." It is a "gross exaggeration" said Ballmer in a statement.

The documents filed in Washington state court continue the battle between the two companies after Google's hiring of former MS executive Kai Fu-Lee. In July MS won the first round with an order temporarily barring Lee to do what he was hired to.

In Tuesday MS will ask for extension of the order. Google considers the lawsuit an intimidation blocking the rise of MS biggest rival. MS finds Lee's switch to the other camp a major vulnerability in keeping company's strategy secrets.
