    Steve Ballmer: Be grateful that you can downgrade from Vista to XP

    Flickr’d Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer says that consumers should be happy that they have the choice to downgrade from Vista to XP.

    Lost In Translation: Europe Could Still Get Zune's This Year

    This should be a lesson to you all. Find someone that actually reads and speaks the language before you go spouting off that Microsoft will not ship Zune’s to Europe in 2007.
