    Bill Gates apparently doesn't see much humor in Apple's "Mac vs. PC" ads.

    In an interview with Newsweek, the Microsoft chairman defends the Windows-using masses.

    "I don't think the over 90 percent of the (population) who use Windows PCs think of themselves as dullards, or the kind of klutzes that somebody is trying to say they are," he said.

    He also takes umbrage at the notion that upgrading to Vista amounts to major surgery.

    "Well, certainly we've done a better job letting you upgrade on the hardware than our competitors have done," Gates told the magazine. "You can choose to buy a new machine, or you can choose to do an upgrade."

    He also argues the PC now has a leg up on the Mac when it comes to security.

    "Nowadays, security guys break the Mac every single day," Gates said. "Every single day, they come out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine."

    Dare? That doesn't sound like the best idea to me

    i mean cant he take a joke i know alot of very normal pc userers and says they love those ads i mean i wonder if this guy does have a serious personalty he was on the daily show monday and i dont think he even broke into a real laugh through out the interview
