    let this be a lesson to you, kids...if you're planning on starting a multinational monopoly, DO NOT POSE FOR PICTURES OR ALLOW DIRECT QUOTES. This will not only serve to create a mystique around you, it will also prevent certain.."mistaken quotes" from surfacing years later. Also, you'd never have to worry about looking as 80's prep as those guys in the picture...tsk tsk.

    That picture is worth more than a thousand words.

    Bill looks like he is 15 in that picture.

    By the way, Apple should use that quote in all of its ads, just to spite Bill.

    There is also a rumor that Bill said something to his developers when he saw Windows 1.0...
    "No, this is not it. I want it to be like the Macintosh. I want the Macintosh on Windows!"

    It's kind of fun to see Bill Gates wearing a "Macintosh" polo shirt and acting like just another Mac software developer.

    well thats pretty much what he was until windows took off. I mean, DOS wasn't even his idea.
