Icon10 We Are Not Leaving Anything to Apple Screams Ballmer




Steve Ballmer explains his plans to ruin Windows with incompetence.


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has a tendency to get excited and overenthusiastic about things. According to CRN, In an interview given to them by Ballmer earlier last week, Steve Ballmer said that Microsoft will leave no “stone unturned” in its innovation battle against Apple.
"We are trying to make absolutely clear we are not going to leave any space uncovered to Apple," he said. “We have our advantages in productivity,” he said. “We have our advantages in terms of enterprise management, manageability. We have got our advantages in terms of when you plug into server infrastructure in the enterprise. "But we are not going to let any piece of this [go uncontested to Apple]," shouted Ballmer. "Not the consumer cloud. Not hardware software innovation. We are not leaving any of that to Apple by itself. Not going to happen. Not on our watch.

"We do feel empowered to innovate everywhere and bring our partners with us," Ballmer said. "We are just not going to leave any -- what’s the expression people like to use -- We’re not going to leave any stone unturned, so to speak, as we pursue that."
Personally I feel that Microsoft is trying too hard to become Apple. The problem is that Microsoft and Apple have completely different approaches and customers. Neither are Steve Ballmer and Stephen Sinofsky clones of Steve Ballmer. In trying to become something that they are not they may cause much damage to their company and customer base. Something which is going to happen with the monstrosity that is Windows 8. Anyway, lets see how this goes.





Ballmer shouting at WPC 2012 in Toronto shortly before the interview.

Just because a company announces they are going to focus on innovation and newer horizons doesn't mean they are trying to become Apple.. sheesh.

Give MS some credit for its history & legacy.

Well, we will find out soon... whether Windows 8 will go the way of Windows Vista.

But for sure, I wish he didn't talk like that. He kept on screaming and somehow, I didn't feel like listening to the whole talk...
