Windows People who work for for-profit companies, especially large ones, are always a bit uninteresting to interview, with media training and marketing instructions taking out all the sharp edges. CNet interviewed Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, and they got some very interesting quotes from the love-him-or-hate-him CEO.

windows 7 on netbooks

could someone point out where in the article it says that win7 doesn't fit on netbooks?

the comment ballmer made was that they are "working hard to make sure windows 7 fits VERY WELL on netbooks."

it seems the title of this thread was a bit stretched.

that said, i'm no fan of MS and agree that ballmer appears not to have a clear direction for the company.

Did they change the title of the story before I read it? Seems to state Vista does not fit.


Ballmer: Well, we've done very well on Netbooks. When they first came out, I'm not sure if people knew whether they were PCs or something else, and I think everybody kind of understands now that a Netbook is a small-form-factor, low-cost personal computer. And we're doing very well with Windows XP, which fits. Vista does not fit, and we're working hard to make sure Windows 7 fits very well on the Netbooks.
