Microsoft Norway’s Windows Director demos Vista on an Apple iMac (link to video)

Espen Pettersen, Director of Windows Client at Microsoft Norway, recently visited a Norwegian newspaper to give a video interview and demo of Windows Vista.

Unfortunately for Microsoft’s Windows OEMs such as Dell, HP, etc., he did not bring his own equipment, which harks back to last summer when, at a presentation of the oft-delayed Windows Vista and Office 2007 for a group of bloggers at Microsoft HQ in Diegem, Belgium, a Microsoft representative demoed the products on an Apple MacBook Pro.

Interestingly, back in April, Steve Ballmer was interviewed by German newspaper “Die WELT” and was aksed, “Couldn’t you just buy a Mac without hesitation since Apple opened up their machines for Windows?” Ballmer responded, “No, we prefer real PCs.”

  1. @hugh,

    I view it the opposite way. What better way of saying Windows is unstable on PCs so the computer of choice to demo is the Mac. In fact, I have had more lock-ups on my intel iMac using Tiger (VERY rare I may add) than I did running XP on it (none). Of course I use OSX 95% of the time so it is a little unfair to compare.
