Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt Friday took a jab at Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system and the Washington establishment in a question and answer session during the 25th anniversary celebration of MIT's legendary Media Lab.

In a wide-ranging discussion with National Public Radio Journalist John Hockenberry, Schmidt said the goal of great technology is to get people to use computers less so they can be more productive.

"The hours I spend reprogramming my PC in Windows 7 is not a very good use of my time," he said before a jam-packed MIT Media Lab auditorium of several hundred students and alumnae.

"Why I choose to do that in the first place is a problem with judgment," he added.
