Bill Gates, Windows Lockups and Communism
January 6, 2005 1 Comment
During his annual keynote speech at the international Consumer Electronics Show, Bill Gates had a Windows Media Center PC hard lock and a game demo blue screen. Ouch. Talk about a rough day at the office. That wasn't enough though. In an interview later, he basically stated that if you do not fully back intellectual-property laws that you are a communist. While I know that the USA has an odd fascination with commies, that's really going a bit far I think. Maybe I'd feel differently if I was worth tens of billions of dollars, but the current system clearly seems broken to me.
