For Steve Ballmer fans, Microsoft plans to release a special edition of Windows 7 Ultimate that comes in a package with the chief executive's signature on the front.

The software maker did the same thing with Vista, Ina Fried of CNET News.com points out, but that time it was Bill Gates whose autograph adorned the packaging.

It looks like that for now, only people who have signed up to host a Windows 7 launch party are going to get their hands on it. For more on the Ballmer version of Windows 7, take a look at the CNET News.com story.
