Default Windows Installed Base To Hit 1 Billion

The Windows installed base will hit the 1 billion mark by the end of Microsoft's fiscal 2008 (which ends on June 30), according to Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO.

"There will be more PCs running Windows than automobiles at that point," Ballmer told attendees of the company's annual Financial Analyst Meeting (FAM) in Redmond on July 26.

Ballmer addressed invited Wall Street analysts and media about how Microsoft has been driving shareholder value and continues to do so in the coming months/years.

Ballmer fired off other bragging points:

▪ Microsoft has doubled profit and nearly doubled revenues in the last five years
▪ Microsoft has returned more than $100 billion to shareholders
▪ The company hired 12,800 new employees in the past year; claiming to have hired 90 percent of the people the company pursues.

It a fight between Microsoft and the pirating people. Microsoft is trying to discourage the people, but do crack installs count in the 1 billion?
