    ...and there's nothing wrong with that. Macs aren't for everyone. But since this is a bait thread, there are inevitably going to be dozens of leering fanboy responses to follow. Get to it, fellows! Jump for that meat!

    If he has a $2,000 custom made doorknob, I'm sure he has a couple of Macbooks lying around somewhere being used as paperweights. :p At least he has good taste in paperweights.

    Why do you say this?

    At home, he probably does not have Macs.

    At the Microsoft campus, that is a whole different situation.

    No Macs? A huge shock, that. If I was Bill Gates I wouldn't have any either. In fact, if I was Bill Gates, I would have pajamas covered in little Windows logos. "Heh, Apple", I would chuckle as I looked at my unprecedentedly large bank account.

    But he has an iPod or 2 in his collection of cars... so I'm guessing he's not lying ;)

    The real question there is does he run bootcamp. :p


    As for Billy G. I don't see why he would need to run a Mac in all honesty, I mean heck shouldn't he be forced to use nothing but vista?

    he has however taken a macbook pro, wiped the drive, and installed windows, therefore rendering it a fast pc notebook...

    not too surprised, just like we wouldn't expect SJ to use a Dull. i remember reading an article like 10 yrs ago saying that everything in Gates' house's controlled by winNT... pretty cool, i thought.

    Maybe he has one, but doesn't know it. It's a big house.

    Why does anyone care what computers Bill Gates has in his home, none the less Macs...

    Seriously...this worth starting a thread? I love my Mac but come on...it's just a tool like any other.

    This is almost the most obvious state of affairs. I am sure he uses them to compare every now and then, but mostly who wouldn't eat their own dog food?

    When I saw that picture I thought that he was testifying before Congress or something.

    I would guess that if he uses Windows for anything it is on a Mac using Bootcamp or a virtulization software.

    I found that was quite obvious fellows. It's bad business to advocate one's competitor. We all also know that Jobs has all the cool secret Macs... PB G5... MB nano...:D

    Surprisingly, not one of Bill's "more than 10" PCs has more than 640k of ram installed...
