In one of the more unusual appearances that I’ve been a part of, here is a “fireside chat” with Steve Ballmer at Mix 2008. (He sidestepped by question about Vista twice, so if you want the latest news about Windows, you’ll have to go here.)

Incidentally, he tossed my Air on the (carpeted) ground! It’s a good thing I have the SSD version. Do you think I should tell him that he broke it and ask him to buy me another one? (Photo credit: Nathan Mook, Betanews)
