Now, baldness, it is a terrible thing [audience laughter] and rich men are afflicted, so that is why that priority is set.
Gates quotes

Bill Gates quotes
There are no significant bugs in our released software that any significant number of users want fixed. I'm saying we don't do a new version to fix bugs. We don't. Not enough people would buy it. You can take a hundred people using Microsoft Word. Call them up and say "Would you buy a new version because of bugs?" You won't get a single person to say they'd buy a new version because of bugs. We'd never be able to sell a release on that basis.
Bill Gates

Gary Kildall was one of the original pioneers of the PC revolution. He was a very creative computer scientist who did excellent work. Although we were competitors, I always had tremendous respect for his contributions to the PC industry. His untimely death was very unfortunate and he and his work will be missed.
