Is the Jan 27, 2003, issue of Information Week (article), Steve Ballmer says that “While some of this money [$5B] is going toward pure research in promising areas such as advanced operating systems and user interfaces, artificial intelligence, and quantum computing, most of our R&D is focused on products that will be available to customers this year or in the next couple of years.” Hmm. Seems that they’re at least exploring the possibility of an advanced OS.
It is a promising idea. Most other Operating Systems have definitely gone that route. Why not Windows. Maybe then you could do more with it. Of course the word ‘Advanced’ on your upgrade box is going to be pretty expensive. If you’re wondering at Steve’s bad choice of words see how he acts when giving a speech. This is real.
