Windows "Windows 7 might be a massive commercial success and an undeniably rock solid piece of software, but Microsoft is apparently unwilling to rest on those soft and cozy laurels. Asked about the riskiest product bet the Redmond crew is currently developing, its fearless leader Steve Ballmer took no time in answering 'the next release of Windows'." Also of note in this same video interview thing: Ballmer states that Silverlight is now pretty much strictly a client, non-cross platform thing, while explicitly stating that when it comes to doing something universal, "the world's gone HTML5".

Not much new when compared to what they were promising with Longhorn. Server was always a better base for Windows in general.


What kind of logic is this? You are trying REALLY hard to make anything Microsoft does look bad, right? So, you're saying there's nothing new in Vista because of what was promised for a product that was never released? So, all the progess Vista brought over XP is void because of promises made for an unreleased product? Does this mean Mac OS X was not a solid improvement over Mac OS 9 because of promises made about Pink and Copland, which never materialised?

Troll fail. Better luck next time.
