    Where was this at?

    If it was at a conference for, say, Office for Mac 2008, then no I'm not surprised.

    Microsoft has an entire division for Macintosh/Apple relations and they are, I'm taking a guess here, probably one of the largest buyers of Apple product.

    I doubt Ballmer gives the speeches at those things though. Regardless the pic is an exercise in irony.

    At first, I thought it was a joke about the awkward, borderline nonsensical grammar on the PowerPoint presentation.

    What tense is the 'future graduated'? Is that the future perfect or future perfect progressive or something?

    Same here. I was thinking they made a typo when trying to spell "Graduates".

    I didn't even notice the MBP at first. I was stuck on the wording, and assumed that was the joke.

    And what OS is it running? MBPs are capable of running XP or Vista these days.

    Microsoft couldn't care less about what hardware you run their OS on, and they would probably actually prefer you to do it on an Apple machine, since it's not prepackaged/discounted with the price of the machine. Every Apple computer running Vista or XP (legally) was a retail purchase of the Microsoft OS.

    They should realise that Applecare won't cover damages from excessive moisture. Cover the MBP if Ballmer takes the stage.

    now if you have a pic of steve B using a mac, that would be more convincing than a mac fanboy put something there and grab a pic to demonstrate his taste (which i m guessing as you can too).:cool:

    Or ripped from the internet


    But still that means these guys had to go into OS X, and set up Windows...sure it runs Windows, but it also has OS X installed.

    Basicly, if everyone did this, Apple market share would be sky high(50/50, I'm sure that works for Apple)
