Weekend Rewind: Watch Steve Ballmer Pitch Windows 1.0 At 135 Decibels

While you may or may not respect his history as Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer has one element to him that everyone enjoys: his voice.

Yes, Ballmer is a living legend when it comes to saying things at top speed and high volume. This is not new. We pulled from the deep archives of YouTube one of our favorite clips of all time: Ballmer pitching Windows 1.0.

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

It’s all Ballmer, despite being so old. In an almost comical infomercial style Steve runs through the amazing powers of Windows 1.0 and asks what you the viewer think that it should cost. After tossing cash into the air, Ballmer drops the real price: $99.

If only Microsoft software still retailed for such a lovely low price. Enjoy!
