Video of Ballmer's Stanford speech

For those who want to hear the Microsoft CEO make a subtle dig at Vista or discuss Microsoft's challenges in search, there's now a video of the hour-long speech he gave at Stanford recently.

For those who want to hear Wednesday's Stanford University appearance by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, the full video is now online (and embedded below).

As I wrote Wednesday, the highlights included his blunt assessment of the genesis of the economic meltdown ("The world borrowed too much money"), his subtle dig at Windows Vista, as well as his take on what's needed for Microsoft to compete in the search business.

But of course, Ballmer says things in a far more entertaining fashion than I can, so by all means, check out the video. The best part is the question-and-answer session with students, which starts at about 26:30.
