Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer today apologised for the shocking state of his company's key product. "We've spent more than twenty years blaming end users for Windows' shortcomings," Ballmer said, "but today the buck stops here."

Ballmer’s admission came after he’d been subpoenaed to give evidence in the case of Olaf Prilo, a mobile phone user critically injured by a fault in the phones’ Windows CE (WinCE) operating system. Prilo was carrying the phone in his back pocket when a system fault turned the battery pack into a miniature rocket booster. Both phone and operating system are now deeply embedded.
