Ballmer says Win2K will be later

Wrapping up a Q&A session with journalists in London earlier today Microsoft president Steve Ballmer happily announced that Windows 2000 would be available later. Later than what? Later than expected? Later than before? Later than Christmas? You decide. His precise words were: "... and Windows 2000 will be available [long pause for audience to shout guesses, but no takers] later." Gags can seriously impact your share price, you know Steve. ®
