IconMicrosoft's Steve Ballmer said Thursday that Wall Street's current expectations for revenue from its newest operating system may be too 'optimistic'. "I'm really excited about how enthusiastic people are about Vista, but I think some of the revenue forecasts for Vista in 2008 are overly aggressive," Ballmer said in a meeting for financial analysts. "[Vista] is primarily a chance to sustain what [Windows] revenue we have - not every release is a revenue growing opportunity." On a related note, boxed sales of Vista trail those of XP in the first few weeks after launch.
