Fresh off the heels of Apple‘s new product announcements this week, Microsoft released their new operating system, Windows 7 today. Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, even stopped by the American morning program, the TODAY Show, to show off the new OS to co-anchor Matt Lauer (video). And the good news for Ballmer? It didn’t crash and show a BSOD on live TV.
Ballmer took on some tough questions from Lauer including:
- Can consumers use the iPhone to satisfy all their computing needs?
- Will Windows 7 get the same lukewarm reaction to Microsoft’s previous operating system, Vista?
- Is Ballmer envious of Apple’s “cool” image?
