Microsoft is supposed to open its first retail stores this fall, presumably before the October 22 roll out out of Windows 7 and some of them are supposed to be "right next door to Apple stores," according COO Kevin Turner.
Remember Microsoft said it was going retail in February when it hired a Wal-Mart heavyweight to run the project, which is supposed to raise consumer awareness rather than sell stuff.
Turner also claims to have gotten a complaining call from Apple about Microsoft's value "Laptop Hunters" commercials because Apple had subsequently lowered its prices.
