In a speech at a recent conference, Steve Ballmer learns that Microsoft isn’t exactly a fan-supported company:

“How many of you use Live Search as your default?” Ballmer asked.

“How many of you use Yahoo search as your default?”

Far fewer hands went up and the room was relative [sic] quiet, until it filled with laughter.
