[News] [Rival] Microsoft CEO Lies About Windows Vista

Hash: SHA1

Vista selling well!?

,----[ Quote ]
| Whatever drugs Steve Ballmer is on they must be very, very good.
| [...]
| Here are the cold hard facts. Microsoft reported on March 25th that its 
| Windows sales had dropped 24% in the last quarter. For the same quarter, IDC 
| said PC sales were up 15%. Now, I'm no financial wizard, but I do know a 
| thing or two. Microsoft's Windows sales, to the best of my knowledge, have 
| just suffered their hardest fall ever at the same time that PC sales were 
| significantly up. This isn't just bad, this is absolutely horrible.     
| Back in March, Microsoft CFO Charles Liddell actually had the chutzpah to say 
| that the drop in Windows sales wasn't due to lackluster Vista sales. Instead, 
| the problem was due to 'unlicensed' PC sales and the higher growth of 
| emerging markets. If you can follow that logic and come up with the same 
| conclusion he did, do let me know, because it makes no sense to me.    
| If PCs are selling without Windows licenses attached to them that tells me 
| that 1) Vista isn't selling and 2) desktop Linux is selling. 


Ballmer lied also days ago:

Ballmer is trying to rewrite Microhoo history

| During a speech Ballmer made Friday at a tech conference in Moscow, Reuters
| reported him as saying, "Yahoo was never the strategy we were pursuing, it
| was a way to accelerate our online advertising business...We will spend money
| on some acquisitions. You can do a whole lot of things with 50 billion
| dollars."



Bill Gates Likes To Lie About Vista

| Denial! C'mon Billy Boy, you know things suck in the land of Vista.
| Just admit it and we'll be on our way.

| A few days later, I saw what Bill Gates had to say in a recent
| Newsweek interview about the Mac as compared to Vista.
|     "I mean, it's fascinating, maybe we shouldn't have showed so
| publicly the stuff we were doing, because we knew how long the new
| security base was going to take us to get done. Nowadays, security
| guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come
| out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I
| dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine."
| My reaction, like most knowledgeable people who read this, was
| open-mouthed astonishment. Now, either Bill is heavily drugged and
| delusional, which I don't believe, or he's just completely ignorant,
| which I also discount, or he knows exactly what he's saying and has
| an ulterior motive. That's my best guess.
| Bill Gates knows that he's at best exaggerating and at worst
| completely lying through his teeth. So why's he doing it? Because
| he also knows that Apple's new ads are helping Macs to sell like
| hot cakes, and that security is a big reason why a lot of people
| are throwing up their hands in disgust at Windows and switching
| to Apple's computers.
| Who reads Newsweek? Not computer pros, but Joe and Jane
| Computer-user, and Joe and Jane tend to believe what they
| read in the mainstream media when it comes to computers,
| especially when that nice, smart philanthropist Bill Gates
| is the one saying it. He's Mr Computer, after all, so he
| must be right!


Bill Gates Blunder on Vista Pricing

,----[ Quote ]
| If you watched the above video you will recall that bill gates
| said that british consumers will not be paying more than US
| customers, and that any price difference is merely due to
| differences in exchange rate.

| Bill Gates has been busted in a big fat lie and we've got the
