Journal twitter's Journal: Not even Steve Ballmer loves Vista.

If you can't beat them, admit they are right and join them... Steve Ballmer became a Vista basher the other day, admitting the year old OS with six years of development was still not ready.

"We ... have a lot of things we need to learn from," said Ballmer [of the "work in progress"] "We have to make sure it doesn't get bigger still and that the performance and the battery and the compatibility we're driving on the things that we need to drive hard to improve."

Addressing the other half of the Vista disaster, Ballmer raised hopes that XP would be available longer than scheduled, "I know we're going to continue to get feedback from people on how long XP should be available. We've got some opinions on that."

All of this would be amusing if his company were not still capable of great harm, like destroying the ISO.
