What was on Steve Ballmer's New Year's resolution list for 2009? ZDNet's Mary-Jo Foley got a peek. Windows 7, netbooks, servers, enterprise, entertainment, it's all there.
As far as Windows Mobile, here's what we've got:
Again, no Zune phone. Foley also was kind enough to dig up what Ballmer predicted for 2007 and 2008. Click through to the jump to find out what those predictions were.
Here's what Foley had to say on Ballmer's predictions the past two years:
Ballmer on Windows Mobile for 2008
Hmmmmm. ... Windows Mobile definitely got better in 2008, with the release of Windows Mobile 6.1. But "more compelling?" Not so sure. Zune and Surface also are nary to be found in Windows Mobile.
Ballmer on Windows Mobile for 2007? Much more brief. WinMo was No. 9 on a nine-point list "of the nine "opportunities" where he believes Microsoft can sustain a half billion or more in new margin growth over the next three years." That growth certainly is still happening. But is it happening enough? And will it be sustainable in 2009?
