    SEATTLE, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile , Research) Chief Executive Steve Ballmer on Thursday forecast that fiscal 2008 operating expenses would be "somewhat less" than the previous year, likely a bit below $2.7 billion.

    "We will have moderating growth in operating expenses next year but I wouldn't expect a huge drop," Ballmer said in a presentation to analysts.

    Ballmer also said that analysts' forecasts for Windows Vista revenue in 2008 were "overly aggressive" and that the world's biggest software maker expected to do "more of the same" with regard to cash.

    He added that the company was willing to spend money to acquire online customers as the company battles for share against rival Google Inc.
  6. Sorry, Steve Ballmer a dumba**. He laughed at the iPhone and said the Moto Q is a better device.

    Wait, my Window XP is working just fine, why spend money to upgrade hardware and software?

    Ohh wait, Microsoft release has always been buggy. Give it 1 year or 2 before the product cycle start to kick in.

    yeah windows has really gone down the tubes. Every release since 95 has been getting worse, the only thing they seem to concentrate on is how it looks, but it keeps getting slower, less secure, and more buggy.
