Steve Ballmer Believes This Is The “Windows Era”

Believes that the world will always be in the Windows era.

Talk about confidence. At the shareholder meeting today, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer had quite a few words to hype up the Windows platform. Including these: “We are in the Windows era – we were, we are, and we always will be.”

Business Insider reports this, and it was a response to a question by someone about the world being in a ‘Post-PC era’. There’s more:

“Through the power of Windows, the PC will be a tablet machine, will be a reading machine, will be a note-taking machine.”

I think it’s an overstatement to say that the world will always be in a Windows era, although domination-wise currently one would have to sort of agree. But it’s quite a cocky thing to say considering the heavy competition, that’s for sure.

Do you agree?
