Okay, that's not exactly what he said, but here's a link to an article about what he actually did say about Windows Vista:

And just to put things in perspective, there's this (not a Rick Roll):

It's a work in progress:  Form of verbal flatulence. Translation:  We know it's a piece of junk, we are going to admit it's a piece of junk and then we are going to make best effort to jam it down your throats anyway (just as you knew we would  Wink).  End quote.

Whoa, whoa, TMI, TMI!!  Oh ... I see what you mean.  Grin

You gotta admit that the vid of Ballmer selling Windows 1.0 is funny though.

I should make an animated GIF of his gesture

Actually, I didn't watch the video Sad  The only time I have available now to browse here is when I wake up at 5:30am and when I get home at night (usually after 8:30pm) due to working full time and studying full time too.

Bill Gates says some stupid things:

Who can make sense out of this stuff these guys are saying?

That made no sense whatever.

Isn't most of the money in software in 'in-house' customizations?

EFG:  I just noticed the youtube link you put up.  Wow, that was really weird.  The woman sitting in the chair next to Ballmer looked really uncomfortable, scared even, like maybe he was going to throw a chair at her and then rape her.

EFG:  Maybe I'm just jaded by the interwebz, but the first thing I thought of when I saw that picture of Ballmer was that he was describing the goatse guy, and saying something like, "Our innovation made this possible."

Yeah, um, hrrrm ... I could say all kinds of things here, but maybe I should just let ol' Stevie speak for himself.
