Ballmer also announced that Windows 7 PCs are expected to hit the 350 million units this year which is an amazing achievement in such a short amount of time and versus Apple, it's not even competition. But we are of course, comparing Apples... to oranges here. Haw, haw. The speech Ballmer gave was at the Microsoft Developer Forum in Tokyo, Japan just yesterday.
