Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told CRN in a recent interview that he will leave no "stone unturned" in his battle against Apple.

"We are trying to make absolutely clear we are not going to leave any space uncovered to Apple," said an exuberant Ballmer in a 30-minute interview after addressing some 16,000 partners at the company's annual Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto. "We are not. No space uncovered that is Apple's.

"We have our advantages in productivity," he said. "We have our advantages in terms of enterprise management, manageability. We have got our advantages in terms of when you plug into server infrastructure in the enterprise.

"But we are not going to let any piece of this [go uncontested to Apple]," shouted Ballmer. "Not the consumer cloud. Not hardware software innovation. We are not leaving any of that to Apple by itself. Not going to happen. Not on our watch.

"We do feel empowered to innovate everywhere and bring our partners with us," Ballmer said. "We are just not going to leave any -- what's the expression people like to use -- We're not going to leave any stone unturned, so to speak, as we pursue that."

Kinda late to the game, Ballmer! Thanks for the throw down. We'll make a note of it and let you know when something comes up. Meanwhile, get the fuck outta here.
