VP Neil Holloway talks up new releases and future innovations...
Windows Mobile 6.5 "continues to demonstrate we're in the game," believes Holloway...
At the recent Microsoft Innovation day in Brussels, we got an exclusive interview with Neil Holloway, Vice President of Microsoft's international business.
As well as quizzing him about Windows 7 and Microsoft's investment in better search technology, we asked him about the raison d'être of the event and Microsoft's plans for even more R&D in Europe.
But how has Microsoft managed to create such good feeling around Windows 7? "For a while we had some issues about security and which we spent a long time and a lot of money trying to address both in Windows XP. And then we spent a long time making sure Vista was ready to go to market.
"But you're right, Windows 7 seems to be very cool. People are beginning to kind of sniff around to see what we're doing. [Plus] Xbox is going fantastically well. So yeah, there's a feeling of optimism."
