Why Ballmer’s Keynote Was Boring
Looks like Ballmer’s keynote address didn’t pack that much punch. Actually, I’ve read several articles that found Ballmer and what he offered to be completely lackluster. From what I gather MS is beating the same drum for the past year if not longer. Ballmer offered nothing new and didn’t even come close to "wowing" the crowd.
Personally I’m underwhelmed by their technology offerings and don’t think it will make much of splash in the months to come. They’re being outpaced at just about every turn by other companies who are more focused, more agile and who understand the game better.
