I couldn’t agree more. I’m tired of Ballmer. Read anything form the Building Windows 8 blog and you’ll see Steven Sinofsky is the guy you should be in charge. As such, I recommend you use that as your source for Windows 8 news and just ignore everything Ballmer does.
Also, who decided it was a good idea to have Seacrest there? He’s “cool”. Microsoft isn’t. He could only have made them look foolish, which begs the question, was that someone’s intention?
