Windows Matters Most, Ballmer Says During Final CES Keynote



+ Add a Comment


I want to see him back it up. I want him to come out and say WIN 8 will be a nice and tightly coded powerful operating system with optimizations of Direct X 11.1 and secure cloud integration. I want to be wrong but suspect it will be a bloated buggy mess that can’t decide if it is a cloud server, PC, tablet, or phone operating system and so does not work well on any of them. If he was going to go out he could have at least gone out on a bang with news about the new Xbox instead of a whimper of a general statement about Win 8. We all know a new Xbox is coming and he might as well make it official even though a release date has not been set.



First thing that came to my head when I the picture was of the old dad in "Everyone Loves Raymond"



Jeez, another maniac CEO in corporate America.



Do you see very many sane average joes running giant companies now a days? I dont. Even Jobs said you have to be crazy to do that kind of thing and he certinly had real issues. So if youed rather set up the plate and do it for them by all means go ahead. As long as your as good as they are. Or as crazy for that matter.



hey dickhead, everytime you switch on a light you can thank an evil coproration, everytime you buy groceries instead of farming or hunting you can thank a evil corporation, everytime you flush your toilet instead of shitting in a hole you can thank a evil corporation, everytime you talk on your phone, or spew your liberal nonsense here you can thank a evil corporation. imbicile



He was in no way saying the corporation was evil. He didn't even say that Ballmer was evil. None of what he said made him liberal or an imbicile. I am perfectly Conservative and vote for representatives trying to grow "Corporate America". I can agree with him that Ballmer made himself look a little unstable. So next time you feel like spewing your assuming nonsense here take some time to think you presumptuous jerk.



If Windows is so important, then why are they moving the Office to the Cloud, and gaming to the console?

Why would any average user want or need Windows if they could access the Office suite from any platform, and game on a console?

You know what... That is so true. I think Microsoft does not have a solid goal in mind. They are kind of everywhere while going nowhere. If Windows is important, then why make a console that does not connect to Windows? Why focus to console gaming over PC gaming? Then they have another problem... Ditching their own products. They ditched the Zune. They ditched the concept of the Courier... And they will continue to ditch more products because well... They really do not know what's important. They lack focus. 



yes - that pic rules... always reminds me of Gunnery Sgt Hartman from Full Metal Jacket with one of the best lines ever. 

"Who said that? Who the fuck said that? Who's the slimy little communist shit, twinkle-toed cocksucker down here who just signed his own death warrant? Nobody, huh? The fairy fucking godmother said it. Out-fucking-standing! I will PT you all until you fucking die! I'll PT you until your assholes are sucking buttermilk! "  



lol, that pic never gets old
