That was great. Every time I have to press those three buttons now it will be with a smile on my face. But that will go away fast, as my anger with Windows will once again take over...

I don't get the problem here. The guy laps it up lauding himself on how he 'invented' a way of causing a software restart, then proceeds to try to take the piss out of Bill. What else is Bill gonna do but be a bit peeved? I know you're gonna come up with different responses, but in reality how else is he gonna react?

It's good for a giggle, but Mr G's an easy target. If only Steve was in charge of such a company...

That is an absolute classic. No way Bill was faking that expression. One of those somewhat subtle comments that has a huge impact.

This brings up an interesting topic. Would you rather be the richest/least respected man in the world or the most respected man, but not the richest? That's the paradox that is Bill Gates.

Duff-Man says....for those that do not remember, in the early versions of OS X - I don't recall exactly in which build it got removed - if you did a cntl+alt+del you got a pop-up that said "This is not Windows" ....oh yeah!

That's awesome, Duff-Man...I'd like to see a screenie of that...I'd also like to bring it back.

This video is great...anyone know where I can find Windows going blue screen during Bill Gates' keynote address?

If being respected but not being THE richest in the world meant I still had enough money that I could retire somewhere nice, definitely most respected :D
