Great quote from Steve Ballmer on Apple’s “Cult Following”
I attended a TechNet event today called “Technologies to Change Your Business: How Customers Are Implementing Tomorrow’s Strategies Today”. It was primarily geared around Microsoft’s virtualization stories and SQL Server 2008, but I attended to see if Steve Ballmer was going to drop any news about Microsoft’s Cloud Services. After his keynote, there was a question and answer session where a question was asked that led to the presenter talking about Apple’s “cult like following” for its products such as iPhone. This was Steve Ballmer’s reply:
Currently 97% of people run our software. I don’t know if that qualifies as a cult but we’re pretty happy with our numbers.
Well said sir, well said.
