Gates send-off: Gates has had Ballmer's back from the beginning

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano

I wrote earlier today about Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer meeting at Harvard and going to a double feature of "Singin' in the Rain," staring Gene Kelly, and "Clockwork Orange." But has anyone heard the story of the physical altercation that occurred afterwards?

Ballmer recounted the event today at a send-off for Gates. They were living at Radcliffe, in Currier House, which Ballmer described as a "weird place."

"Bill and I were as weird as you got in this weird place in many ways," he said.

"We come back from the movie and we're both kind of dancing and playing Gene Kelly, and some guy just wrestles me to the ground ... and Bill's trying to like beat him off," Ballmer said to roaring laughter (because wouldn't you expect it to be the other way around?). "It was really quite a weird place."
