And one that's labeled "Mark" (not Shuttleworth)...
It's in Wikipedia... wait...

'According to one former employee's headline-grabbing allegations, this
competitive nature has manifested itself more violently. In 2005, Mark
Lucovsky claimed that Ballmer became highly enraged upon hearing that
Lucovsky was about to leave Microsoft for Google. In the account, Ballmer
threw a chair across the room and shouted: "Fucking Eric Schmidt is a
fucking pussy. I'm going to fucking bury that guy, I have done it before,
and I will do it again. I'm going to fucking kill Google." Shortly after, he
resumed trying to persuade Lucovsky to stay at Microsoft. Ballmer has
described Lucovsky's account of the incident as a "gross exaggeration of
what actually took place."'
