Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

Repeat after me: Win7 does _not_ run on ARM. Read it again, _understand_ what it means.

Microsoft was do pre-occupied with their Vista mess that they lost track of where the market was going.

Half of the market basically only needs surfing and watching movies etc, now are they doing to get a less than 1cm thick netbook, with no fans that runs for hours and hours and pay $199 fpr it OR are they going to buy a really slow $300 netbook with a fan and less battery time?

The revolution is here, even Red Hat is getting back into the desktop business. OMG ITS THE YEAR OF THE THE LINUX DESKTOP!!!!1
