No threat or innovation coming from another firm should be ignored, or downplayed, however Ballmer doesnt acknowledge Apple, which is at his own peril. He has got to be the biggest doofus, know nothing company leader there is.

It would behoove Ballmer, to get a secret illness, or some excuse to step-down from CEO and let new blood run MSFT. He does not have the acumen or temper to carry on where Gates left off. Coupled with the fact that MSFT has been in the sights of the EU, and US Courts, they now have to play fair...and playing fair is something MSFT has never done.

So for MSFT having Ballmer in charge while trying to corner the market, steal ideas, and circumvent the law makes for an improbable chance of success, or for any meaningful stock uptick.

If you want good AAPL, Apple stock, and skip Windows 7 for Mac OS X.
