Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on Monday campaigned for the company's Metro user interface, a key part of the upcoming Windows 8 operating system that will power tablets and desktop units. Microsoft is counting on Windows 8 to stave off competition from Apple's iOS and Google's Android platforms. "We have a chance over the next year to raise our product lines to the next level," Ballmer told an audience at the International CES, which Microsoft will no longer attend as an exhibitor after this year.
