Sorry, but when you meet some of the top bods like Ellison or Ballmer, you soon realise that money is a secondary concern. The chair throwing incident is an indicator that Ballmer is a really poor loser and , if you work for him, you better not lose either! People like Ballmer and Ellison usually have already more money than they need, they could retire and never want for anything, but they go on because it's all about the win and flaunting your success. Ballmer could take home $100m and if it was in a year his reign was painted as a failure then he would be LESS happy than if he took home $1 but was publicly lauded for grinding all his enemies into the dirt. Ballmer will keep on playing and playing to win because it's the best game in town and more addictive than ordinary gambling.
