from redherring, a somewhat antagonistic and long, but very interesting interview with bill gates in which he talks about .Net (or dot.net — not sure which is correct), xBox, AOL, Linux, and the Law Suit among other things … a few interesting bill quotes:
[.Net] "It's designed to get rid of the idea that there is this big install taking place."
[xbox] "If there was ever a business were no company has been the leader for two generations in a row, it's video games."
[Linux] is … probably, in a certain sense, our primary competitor.
[innovation] "Tim Berners-Lee … some one who spent a long time believing in a thing and really stuck with it."
[the government] "No, no, no! Not dumb. Not dumb. This is worse than dumb. This is malicious."
