Microsoft's Steve Ballmer to Present During WWDC 2010 Keynote?

Do you think this can be true?

According to Trip Chowdhry, an analyst with tiny Global Equities Research, 7 minutes of Steve Jobs' keynote is allotted for Microsoft. Microsoft will reportedly be talking about their development tool Visual Studio 2010. The new version of Visual Studio will reportedly allow developers to write native applications for the iPhone, iPad and Mac OS.
This would be so awesome for iPhone/iPad developers who likes Visual Studio, like me for example.

I believe it's total BS.

I really can't see that happening, but it would be funny if it is true (especially if he goes crazy )

So instead of paying $99 to develop for the iPhone, developers now have the option of paying $800 instead?

This has already been debunked, by Microsoft on Twitter, via Engadget.

The MS post implies that Ballmer would show up at WWDC right after he appears on Dancing With The Stars and runs the Preakness Stakes. I suspect a sharp drop in temperatures in Hell would figure in there somewhere.

Haha, Microsoft just shot down this rumor via Twitter, as the person above me said. I doubted it the whole time. Come on, be serious. Microsoft showing up at one of Apple's largest event? And even more, helping out developing for iPhone? Pfft. xD
