Steve Ballmer says it's OK to skip Windows Vista

Posted on Monday, October 20 2008 @ 04:12:01 CEST by

The Tech Report writes Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said he doesn't mind businesses skipping Windows Vista altogether:
According to ZDNet, Ballmer stated the following in response to a Gartner study that says "61 percent of respondents are thinking about skipping Vista:" Ballmer said that Microsoft would be ready for that outcome too. Mentioning Windows 7–he quipped about the creative naming convention of using just "7"–he indicated that Microsoft would be ready for folks that want to skip Vista. In fact, he said Windows 7 would be compatible with Vista.

"Our next release of Windows will be compatible with Vista. The key is let's get on with it. We'll be ready when you want to deploy Windows 7."

Ballmer went on to describe Windows 7 as "Vista, but a lot better." He was quick to add, "It's not minor because it's a lot more work than a minor release. It's a major release," mentioning changes like "cleanness of user interface."
