“The most important thing we've done”

Speaking at the Seoul Digital Forum, Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer said that the company’s upcoming OS, Windows 8, is the most important thing it’s done.

Ballmer has never been the one to skimp on words and he mentioned “the dawning of the rebirth of Windows.” He also threw in a couple of adjectives such as “deepest, broadest and the most impactful [Windows ever]”.

Ballmer delivered a few estimates as well and said that 400-500 million people will have Windows 8 next year. He added that it will make it the most popular system. As for its older brother, Windows 7, Ballmer expects 350 million Win7 devices to ship in 2012.
