    While this picture has been dugg, and I understand the intent behind posting it: the irony of the spit-flecked Microsoft madman monkey-boy actually using a tool - nay, worse, a product! - of the ENEMY... I must say I find it rather amusing to see the number of posters attracted to this.

    So he used a Mac. Wow. And I'm sure Torvalds has used a Windows machine, and Jobs as well. Out in the real world it is "best tool for the job", and "whatever happens to be handy". Only when one is spinning marketing propaganda does it actually matter.

    As Jeff Mc Neill said above, any OS on any hardware. Everything has been virtualised, and this means the Hardware Wars and the OS Wars have made way for the Abstraction Wars. Right now, it's the Web and everything associated. Who knows where to next?

    In short, wtf gives a continental, flying, long-haired, seven-breasted yak about this? If you answered in the affirmative, do yourself a favour: pull your ass away from that screen and keyboard, and find the shortest path to outside.

    but there's no photoshop

    in fact the person before him left the computer on stage, while he didn't use a computer at all (it was an automated presentation)

    There is no way this can happen, For big presentations like this, the computer is not on the stage. What if it fell off and was too damaged to continue?

    There are normally two computers (one redundant) off stage. When Ballmer wants to change slides, he clicks a controller that only activates a buzzer by the stage manager, The stage manager checks to see that this is the right time to changes slides (instead of the speaker accidentally clicking the remote) and, if so, sounds a buzzer to the people running the computers,

    Vokidas has it right,
