Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer has warned Google that it may face problems by creating a new operating system, according to reports.
Ballmer said in an onstage Q&A session following his speech at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans yesterday that Google is making the same mistake as Microsoft did in the days when it produced Windows NT and Windows 95.
"I don't know if they can't make up their mind, or what the problem is over there," he said. "The last time I checked you don't need two client operating systems."
Ballmer also ruled out Microsoft creating a new operating system.
"What we need to do is continue to evolve Windows, Windows applications, Internet Explorer, the way IE works in totality with Windows, and how we build applications like Office," he said. "We need to make sure we can bring our customers and partners with us."
