this is a clip from a 20 min interview Gates did at CES, ...where the vista brand was reported as conspicuously absent-replaced with the Windows brand.
I have read that aside from an upcoming 300 Million dollar ad campaign, Microsoft is now focusing on Windows 7 development.

I have to wonder what operating system is being used at his home. I do not mean what was being used when first installed (in his home's full-automation), but currently. It'd be funny if it was Linux.

I liked his answer it was candid and honest something rarely seen by business spin-doctors. I doubt that Ballmer would have said that.

I was at Comdex in Las Vegas way back in the early 90ís, probably 90 or 91 and I just happened to ride an elevator with him to show floor. He seemed like he was just a regular guy very friendly and polite an image that stuck with me.

But Macs, today, are more PC than PC's are. Mr. Green

Vista- The new Windows ME Very Happy

I am not fond of vista - I love XP and server 2003.

We are however switching over to Mac's for day to day stuff so I can rest easy with virus's-spyware etc.

Plus it runs windows if I need it.
