That was then ...

This is now?  Ok, maybe it was 6 years ago?

Alright, I'll try to stop laughing now while I finish this post.  I saw the first video a few months ago and the second video I got from Fake Steve Ballmer.  I think the first video was true and it was obviously from the late 80s.  The second video could be a gag Microsoft posted for laughs or someone did a really good edit job. I don't know who the man pushing him out of the way is. I don't know who the CEO talking about fewer helpdesk calls is but he sure sounded like Mike Cox (our favorite talkback CIO).
