Well what do you expect him to say about MS BOB.
"It sucked, what were we thinking of?"
I don't think so. Bill Gates always makes sure that he is as boring
as possible in any interview. God knows what he is really like.
I don't think that it is physically possible for anyone to be that boring
and it is a stark contrast to the stuff about him in the unofficial
and "Barbarians Led By Bill Gates".
I'm not saying that he is is the most excitiing guy on the planet but
I don't think that it is possible that anyone can be that boring.
I'll wait until I'm CEO of the world's largest corporation in
the most competitive and variable business sector before I
say that I'm smarter than Bill Gates. ( nobody hold their breath, Ok )
How smart is he ?
Smart enough that we end up using his products whether we want to or
