Steve Ballmer at Mix'08

I watched Steve Ballmer's interview at Mix'08 with Guy Kawasaki and thought I should share the video link here.

Steve Ballmer interview with Guy Kawasaki at Mix'08

As always Ballmer was entertaining - even though he was in PR mode for quite some time.

Some of the lighter moments from the interview I enjoyed:

When talking about Macbook Air, Ballmer grabbed the laptop from Kawasaki and waved it around yelling: My Toshiba is lighter than this... And where's the DVD drive?!!

Answering one of the audience questions on when web-developers were going to get some love, like Developers (referring, of course, to this), Ballmer stood up and repeated his developer mantra, this time for web developers.

On the serious side, he spoke about the Yahoo deal, Silverlight and a host of other issues.

Overall, a fun interview to watch :) Before parting, let me share a remix video on the theme - Developers!
