Apple has apparently won over desk share in a room of about 400 Wall Street analysts gathered at Redmond now for Microsoft’s Financial Analysts Meeting.
Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer was onstage talking about how Microsoft is doing against Apple in market share in fiscal year 2008, then said he had been counting the number of Apple laptops versus PCs in the room.
“I can see we have some work to do here” in this room on Microsoft versus Apple share, Ballmer said. “I’ve already counted them. We got a bank of them over here in the middle, over here. Feel free, as long as you’re using Office to go right ahead.”
