As I mentioned in my last post, Microsoft’s monopoly on the desktop computer is endangered. We, at Microsoft, have been holding emergency brainstorming sessions to discuss the problem. In today’s meeting, we talked about the threat that Linux poses. The main question that arose was “Why is Linux becoming so popular?”
Ballmer suggested that Linux is becoming more popular because there are hundreds of different distributions of Linux. If you don’t like one distribution, then there’s always another available.
On the other hand, there are only eleven different versions of Windows that we’re currently selling. They are:
- Windows XP Professional Edition
- Windows XP Home Edition
- Windows XP Media Center Edition
- Windows XP Starter Edition
- Windows XP Edition N
- Windows XP Office Edition
- Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
- Windows Vista Premium Edition
- Windows Vista Basic Edition
- Windows Vista Business Edition
- Windows Vista Enterprise Edition
As you can tell, we don’t have that many different versions of Windows available. We know that our users want more versions. If we can offer as many versions of Windows as there are distibutions of Linux, then people will start switching to Windows.
Today we’re taking one big step in that direction. We’re introducing a totally new version of Windows XP. Today is only the beginning. We’ll be releasing around ten to twenty other new versions of Windows this year. Some will be based on Windows XP, and some will be based on Vista.
Anyways, we’re proud to introduce…
