They´ll still be the demon company that everyone hates and is paranoid about. Regardless of who´s in the chair.

I say thanks to them, they´re the reason we all have PCs.

Yeah, thanks Bill, or may-be he should be saying thanks to all of us who use windows, perhaps we could all get a free upgrade to Vista as a parting gift. He can afford it.

I think its excellent that he has decided to dedicate his time on the foundation him and his wife set up to help less fortunate people than themselves. If you visit their website that AI94 provided it shows you what kind of work they do and pictures.

Good on you Bill and Melinda
