Yes, that's our very own eiDieter Bohn hard left in the pic, and he assures us, even as we tease him, the machine mix was close to 50/50 and many were running Windows virtual machines (they needed to sync their Zunes, after all!)

(And no, there were no reports of Ballmer snatching iPhones at this event, sadly no reports of iPhones at the event at all...).
