That is a strong statement. I was anti Microsoft for so long.Bill Gates is a shyster, a thief, a pretender...and his company's half-assed products--- combined with monopolistic behavior from Day 1, have brought more misery and lost productivity on the world than could ever be fathomed.
I wrote my own operating systems back in 8008, 1802 days. When the 6800 came out I thought that the cat's ass.
Gates bought the code in a brave move to get the IBM contract. Way, way out on limb.
