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


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer says that consumers should be happy that they have the choice to downgrade from Vista to XP. (Remember, XP retail sales are set to end on June 30.) “I don’t know how you can do better than getting both,” says Ballmer, no doubt pained by all the reports that Vista isn’t so hot (to put it lightly), and that companies like Dell let consumers pick XP instead of Vista at checkout.

Even worse? Some companies are planning to skip Vista altogether, and will migrate to Windows 7 when it comes out next year.

The wow starts when?
