In case you’ve been holding out, Microsoft has recently announced (no joke!) a special version of Windows 7, dubbed the “Steve Ballmer” edition.

Copies are being given to Windows enthusiasts who are hosting their own Windows 7 launch parties throughout the country.

I’m not quite sure what to make of autographed editions of software. Is it collectible? Does it lose value if you open it? Does Windows 7 really need a “Steve Ballmer” edition? Or, put more succinctly, does anyone outside of the tech crowd even *know* who Steve Ballmer is?

What do you think? Sound off in the comments below!
