Don’t egg Steve Ballmer on, he’ll just stick around longer

Microsoft president and fatboy Steve Ballmer made a visit at a Hungarian University this week where he was pelted with three eggs by a young man who demanded the company return the money it had stolen from his people.

Clearly not realizing that the man was referring to the amounts Hungary’s early adopters have spent on Windows Vista, Ballmer cowered in the corner until the offending visitor was escorted out.

Ballmer’s speech, incidentally, was called “You can change the world.” And you know what, kids? You can change the world — just don’t change your operating system.

A clip of Ballmer’s egg incident comes after the jump.
