I’m here in Kenya and in Nairobi to listen and learn. The core mission of Microsoft is to empower every person and organisation on the planet to achieve more.
I felt that in order to realize that mission with the Windows 10 launch we wanted to celebrate with our fans all over the world instead of going to a media-rich country
We wanted to go out there where our fans are because we are a truly global product and we have usage everywhere.”
