Ballmer on PC’s Role in Web Services World

Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer said on Tuesday that lines between on-premise software and Internet services are blurring, an industry shift the company is embracing. During his talk, Ballmer said many websites can be described as ‘click to run’, where a service is delivered via a Web site but runs on a PC. “I do think that we’re in a transition where software goes from something that’s in its pre-Internet day to something we call Live (Microsoft’s hosted services), where you have click-to-run capability on a Web site… But software will still execute on a PC,” Ballmer said in response to questions.
