Ballmer selling Microsoft Windows 1.0
Thursday, October 26, 2006

This is from 1985. Steve hasn't changed much, has he?

As per the $99 price for Windows 1.0, it seemed fair at the time--after all, Windows 1.0 can "integrate Lotus 1-2-3 with Miami Vice [fancy weird dance here]."

Accounting for inflation, $99 would be worth $176 today. How much is XP worth today?

For alternatives, you can always pay $0 for your OS (relatively $0).

I bet Linux kept cheery-O Steve-O here awake at night, many nights. I think the dude's nightmares have transformed from free operating systems to free office-productivity tools, a la google.
