Not to turn this into a home page for Microsoft's Vista--it does release tonight at midnight--but we thought you'd be interested in what Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had to say--as he talked with CNBC's Bill Griffeth about Vista and what lies ahead.
Ballmer naturally stood by Vista--calling it a milestone that helps change the definition of the PC. He also said that if users think this is the end of a big splash operating system--think again. Ballmer says Microsoft will have another OS down the road--he just didn't say when. (this is in contrast to the idea of incremental updates for computer operating systems.)
Ballmer says that he and his company read all the reviews, blogs and whatever is out there in regards to Vista during development and after. He said there more than 1 billion users sessions that were recorded in the building of the new OS. He gave another number--that some 1.5 million devices will be supported by Vista.
