Microsoft Tries To Clarify Ballmer’s Remarks… Fails Badly…

Steve Ballmer really muddied the waters last week by saying that Windows XP could live past June 30th if he got feedback from users that they want it. So a Microsoft PR rep tried to clear those waters by saying that there was no change in the June 30th deadline. Among other things the sock puppet spokesperson said:

“Our plan for Windows XP availability is unchanged. We’re confident that’s the right thing to do based on the feedback we’ve heard from our customers and partners,”

Who are they speaking to? Have they not noticed that nobody is moving to Vista? Perhaps they are listening to shareholders who want a return on the $6 billion or so that was spent developing such a flop the Vista OS?

Man, the spin from Redmond is getting so bad, there must be a tornado over Microsoft HQ.
